The Most Popular Music Videos Released This Week (10/10)

Before this week I was fairly confident that we'd never see a massively popular music video featuring will.i.am with a beard dressed as a small child, but here we are. This week's most popular music video was "Ew!" by Jimmy Fallon featuring will.i.am, and it benefitted from a premiere on The Tonight Show, as well as a campaign by Fallon throughout the week to get the song onto the iTunes music charts. It was on there for a day or two, but as of Friday night, I can't find it anywhere.

But "Ew!" is far from the only oddity on this week's list, which features a sprawling cover of "God Only Knows" by various famous artists to promote the BBC's new music venture. We also have the Daft Punk helmets imagined as giant, floating rock formations. You know what? Why not.

If you want more than just the top 10, have at this top 25 playlist. You know the drill. You know what? This week I'm doing something different. Instead of the same old same old at Applebees, IMVDb is going for some local, artisan fare. Maybe some place with a hookah. Let's go cra-you know what, who am I kidding, Appleees it is.
