Adorkable: Music

  • The male lead in the music video for Colbie Caillat's "Fallin' For You" (played by Bobby Moynihan) is clumsy, a touch overweight, and has all the surfing skill of a native Arizonan, but in spite (or because) of these obvious 'shortcomings', his girlfriend is clearly smitten with the big lug.
  • Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. A good chunk of his earlier songs are about puppy-love, and he's cute and dorky in video for "Holiday". The fact that he looks barely over half his age helps, too.
  • One of the three male Love Interests of Sugababes' music video "Push The Button". He's a dork with one of those Norwegian ski sweaters and black nerdy glasses and weird facial hair. Yet the hot blond woman with a bare midriff in a tight red top and a tight skirt is very much into him.
  • David Bowie's Jazzin' for Blue Jean, a 20-minute long-form video, is based around the Talky Bookends story of Vic, a lovestruck-but-clumsy man who tells a Celebrity Lie to the woman of his dreams and now has to find a way to personally introduce elegant, supercool rock star Screamin' Lord Byron to her. Bowie plays both men, and Vic doesn't get the girl in the end for all his trouble — which Bowie doesn't think is fair.
