* Music/{{Bastille}}: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOrbfQpdLKo Good Grief]]". The music video starts off with lead singer Dan Smith trying to call someone on a pay-phone, then quickly veers off into complete and utter MindScrew involving female roller skaters, burning buildings, [[LivingToys giant living teddy bears]], game shows, bank robberies, and [[LosingYourHead Dan's disembodied head]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking lying on the ground by some sports equipment]]. All this set to the eponymous song: [[LyricalDissonance an upbeat song about grieving after losing a loved one]]. You may need a shower after watching it...and that's only the uncensored version.

* The video for DavidLynch's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IugOfDBWcGc "Good Day Today"]], which is surprisingly not directed by Lynch himself, but has a lot of his signature style. One particularly creepy scene has a boy's father sitting in the dark watching television; when the father leans forward it's revealed [[EyeScream he has empty eye sockets]], and then the mother takes his eyes out of a frying pan and offers them up as a meal. However, once it's revealed that a large portion of the video was [[AllJustADream just a highly symbolic daydream]] of the viewpoint character, the surreal imagery starts to make sense - it's just about a boy feeling neglected by his family.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQ31jQjNpQc The Riddle]] by Nik Kershaw is screwy from beginning to end, with the singer rambling around in a nonsensical house filled with weird items, of which none have the slightest to do with the song - which is a string of WordSalad lyrics. The end of the video? It turns out the house Kershaw was trapped in was a question mark, picked up by none other than ''The Riddler'' of Franchise/{{Batman}} fame.

The same Riddler shows up a number of times, along with figures from Literature/AliceInWonderland. Does not make the video more understandable, though.

* Daler Mehndi's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTIIMJ9tUc8 video]] for "Tunak Tunak Tun" went viral for its surreal content -- namely, several DifferentlyDressedDuplicates of himself ("differently" as in "wearing the same turban and robe in [[PaletteSwap different bright colors]]") doing a bizarre dance while {{Chroma Key}}ed onto various ConspicuousCG backgrounds.
