The Best Celebrity Music Video Cameos [VIDEOS]

You gotta love a celebrity in a music video. The bigger the better, because obviously the celeb isn’t doing it for the money. Whether it’s the love of the music or the artist, it’s kinda cool. Here’s my top ten list of celebrity music video cameos:

Gorillaz – “Stylo“: Did you miss a recent Bruce Willis cameo in this Gorillaz video for “Stylo” (off 2010′s Plastic Beach)? Bruce Willis vs. animated Gorillaz is good enough to make the list. Check it out:

Aerosmith – “Jaded – Aerosmith has had pretty good luck in picking up-and-coming starlets for their videos (Liv Tyler, Alicia Silverstone), and they continued that string in 2000 by nabbing “That 70s Show” actress Mila Kunis:

Butch Walker and the Black Widows – “Synthesizers – 15 years later Matthew McConaughey reprises his role as David Wooderson from the classic 90s flick ‘Dazed and Confused”. Great role in a great movie. Loved seeing it again, even just in a short music video:

AC/DC – “Big Gun – This is a comical (in a cartoony sort of way) video featuring pre-political career Arnold Schwarzenegger. He turns up at an AC/DC show, makes his way to the stage after lighting his cigar with dynamite, and eventually gets transformed into a school boy uniform-wearing guitar-rocking badass like Angus Young:

Rolling Stones – “Anybody Seen My Baby?” – Angelina Jolie was still a fledgling actress in 1997 when she appeared as a stripper who flees the club where she’s dancing as Mick Jagger tries to track her down in the streets:

 

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers – “Into the Great Wide Open – This video has plenty of celeb cameos, Gabrielle Anwar, Faye Dunaway, Terence Trent D’Arby, Chynna Phillips. None bigger than the video’s main role though, played by Johnny Depp. Great song, great story, great video:

Bruce Springsteen – “Dancing In The Dark – Long before ‘Friends’, Courteney Cox was a short-haired, wide-eyed young lady who got pulled onstage to dance with the Boss:

Foo Fighters – “Learn To Fly – The Foo Fighters have been known for their lighter, goofy videos and “Learn To Fly” was no exception, with the help of funny man Jack Black. Jack plays an airline worker who stashes his weed in a commercial jet’s coffee pot. Watch as the hilarity ensues from there:

Paul Simon – “You Can Call Me Al – Chevy Chase made perhaps the most popular celebrity music video cameo of the 80s when he appeared in Paul Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al” video. Chevy lip synchs the whole song while Simon waits quietly by for the chance to interject. That and the congo drum solo…classic!

Fatboy Slim – “Weapon of Choice – Who knew Christopher Walken could move like this? Not many people are aware that before Walken was an actor, he actually trained as a dancer for musical theatre at the Washington Dance Studio. It makes for my favorite celebrity cameo music video of all time:
