Literal Music Video
Literal Music Videos are a collection of music videos in which the vocals are replaced with a Gag Dub describing the action occurring on the screen.

At least usually. In the Literal Music Video of Video Killed the Radio Star, the music and voice remain the same, but a video is shown of a video "literally" killing a radio and then getting arrested by laughing cops.


Examples:

  • Like A Prayer
  • Literal Pants
  • Loser (creator Dustin McLean joked on his website that BECK created a video where the literal lyrics "almost make more sense than the original!")
