* Semi-example: For the first few minutes of the GratefulDead's "Touch of Grey", the band are replaced by skeleton puppets. Around the three-quarter mark, someone finally gets one of the drummers' leg back from a dog, plugs it into the socket, and the skeletons flash into the actual band.

* Music/TheBeastieBoys video for "Make Some Noise" features Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, and Danny [=McBride=] lip-syncing to the song and dressed as Mike D, Ad Rock, and MCA (respectively) from the "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)" video. The video functions as a sort of sequel to the earlier video, and features TheBeastieBoys in brief cameos portraying other characters.

* [[{{Friends}} Phoebe]] fronted for a (probably) unattractive singer with a fantastic voice. It took her a while to realise it wasn't her singing...

Added DiffLines:

* On the recording of Music/{{Erasure}}'s "Breathe" and the rest of the ''Nightbird'' album, the female backing vocals were performed by Jill Seifers Walsh, the wife of guitarist Steve Walsh, but the video depicts Valerie Chalmers as the backup singer instead.

** Also notable for actually being shot at a Grateful Dead concert. The fans stayed for ''three hours'', dutifully singing along to the same song seventy times and loudly applauding the puppets.

* Probably the most infamous example of this is the MilliVanilli scandal; the actual singers were great, but middle-aged and not good-looking.

** There were actually several deeper meanings, one of which was that the meaning was lost on the audience. Pink Floyd was[[note]]until roughly 1987, when they started touring and recording again after a hiatus[[/note]] widely regarded as one of the most "Faceless" bands in rock history; nobody had any clue what they looked like (they just pictured prisms and guys shaking hands while engulfed in flames). Members of the band have since stated that they felt like they could have [[MilliVanilli hired a different band to tour for them]], and none would be the wiser.

* Music/{{KoRN}}'s video for "Twisted Transistor" replaces the actual band members (Jonathan Davis, Fieldy, David Silveria, and Munky) with four famous rappers (LilJon, Xzibit, David Banner, and SnoopDogg, respectively) for a ''ThisIsSpinalTap''-style mockumentary. The actual musicians only appear at the end of the video as music company executives.

Added DiffLines:

** The music video for I Really Like You by Music/{{Carly Rae Jepsen}} features Tom Hanks lip-syncing the words while Jepsen sings. She does appear in the video, though, but only far after the beginning and mostly in crowd scenes.

* A somewhat extreme inversion of this trope is the {{Nine Inch Nails}} video for ''Into The Void'', which consisted for the most part of extreme close-ups of frontman Trent Reznor's face, hair, eyes, and skin.

** A similar effect occurs in the video for {{Radiohead}}'s "High and Dry." It's set in a roadside diner in the Southwest US, and while the band does appear, all the lip-syncing is done by actors playing other customers and staff.
