** Their "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=617ANIA5Rqs We Share Our Mother's Health]]" video is an animated nightmare of stark black, white, and blood-red backgrounds featuring abstract birds, marching near-faceless red-and-black figures, and endless rows of surgical impliments.

* Music/TheSmashingPumpkins' Creator/GeorgesMelies-influenced clip for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsZYqaSc4cU Tonight, Tonight]]" features a couple in early 1900's dress using a blimp to journey into space. After they use umbrellas to parachute down to the Moon, they are captured by aliens. It just gets weirder from there.

** BillyJoel was one of the first to go surreal with his videos; 1982's "Pressure" has people falling into water - ''sideways'' - a young boy getting sucked into a television set, water gushing out of a school desk and Billy himself writhing in anger at a disembodied movie screen.

* [[FranzFerdinand Franz Ferdinand's]] "Take Me Out" is like a whistlestop tour of early 20th Century Art, in the style of Creator/TerryGilliam.

** To elaborate, in the video for "Prison Sex" a black figure molests a smaller, paraplegic, white figure in a room made of cupboards, but in the end the white figure turns out to be in a cupboard that is closed by the black figure. Their video "Ænema" features an obese business man who sees a crack in an empty gray room that sprays water so he brings a bundle which he opens to reveal an alien-figure. The alien figure proceeds to develop a hose like organ that fills the room it is in full of water. Then the business man ends up taking the alien-figure and puts him in a box full of water and kicks it around. "Vicarious" is also pretty strange.

* Several videos directed by Mark Romanek qualify, but especially his work with [[NineInchNails Trent Reznor]].

* DavidBowie: A TropeCodifier. If the Bowie video you're watching is post-1979 and not a ConceptVideo, there's a good chance it's this. Examples include "Fashion", "Loving the Alien", "Miracle Goodnight", "Hallo Spaceboy", and "Little Wonder".
