The new Zac Brown Band video for "The Wind" is directed by Mike Judge -- which means a big game-hunting robot in the deep South gets the Beavis and Butthead treatment.

Indie-pop pair Matt & Kim earned the Breakthrough Music Video MTV award in 2009 for "Lessons Learned," their simple-yet-brilliant walk-and-strip in Times Square.

Their new vid, for "Let's Go," is styled in a similarly simple fashion, this time around the skills of Pat the Roc, "the world's greatest ball handler."

The title track from Beirut's 2011 album The Rip Tide finally gets the video it deserves, from director Houmam Abdallah.

Zach Condon elaborates:

I always felt that "The Rip Tide" wasn't fully able to project its own ambitions in song form.. no matter how it was performed or recorded, it felt contained by sound alone… I wanted more, as I often do with my music, and this is not a bad thing. Growing to accept a song's limits is part of the process of creating and loving them. Which was why I was so excited to see what Houmam had dug into when he picked "The Rip Tide" out of all others for a video. The concept fit, and the product brought the song somewhere that I had only been able to describe to myself, now available for others to see and feel it much more as I had in the process of writing it.

The extraordinary new video for "Parler le fracas," by French hip-hop group Le Peuple de l'Herbe, "channels Orwell's Animal Farm, updated for the Occupy Wall Street era. Pigs in riot police gear face off with disenfranchised industrial workers -- a goose, a chameleon, and hundreds of other small animals who combine forces to create a Godzilla-like monster."

Prepare to be amazed.

As a tribute to recently-departed Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch, filmmaker James Winters remade the music video for "Sabotage" with his two kids and their cousin playing the Beasties.

I'm telling y'all it's an homage.
