Tegan and Sara "Boyfriend" (Clea DuVall, dir.)

There's something lo-fi, off-the-cuff and "anti" about the about Tegan and Sara's "Boyfriend" video — which are all phrases that I would use to describe Robin Thicke's notorious "Blurred Lines" smash. But instead of a topless Emily Ratajkowski and the other women who apparently didn't capture the media's attention, we have designer Rachel Antonoff and actresses Sarah Ramos and Mae Whitman, who keep trying to spruce up this mostly bare video, while TeSara stay focused on signing the song and getting this damned (yet awesome) video finished. 

Grimes "Flesh without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream" (Grimes, dir.)

Lots of artists direct their own videos (or at least take that credit), but nobody goes as far as Grimes, who wrote, directed, edited, colored and art directed hew new "Flesh without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream" clip. That singular vision hits upon several bloody and trippy set-ups, ranging from day-glo Marie Antoinette to club-kid bandit, sporting gal and fallen angel.
