    Post Contest: Worst Music Video of All Time

    Hey kids, let's have a contest! Here's how it will work: We post the worst music videos we can find, one entry per person, and then we have a vote over which is really, truly the worst video of all time.

    Rules:
    1. One video per Orgah. I know, this is kinda arbitrary, but I think it will focus us nicely. If you're free to post ten videos, you just slap them up without thinking—but if you can only have one video, you're going to give it some real consideration.
    2. No joke videos. In other words, music videos that are intentionally bad as a gag. This rules out classics such as Praise You, The Ding Dong Song, and Electronic Supersonic.
    3. For neatness' sake, use this format: Musician, Music Video (If you don't know how to attach a link to text, just PM me.)
    4. After a week or so I'll start a new thread for voting.
    5. The video that wins will be exalted for all time, and the Orgah who supplies it will be given a lifetime supply of Burger King Crowns.

    Of course, now I have to decide between two of my all-time favorite bad videos. What idiot made up the rules to this contest?

    Oh, right, me. Hmmm.

    Here's my pick (and I'll be exicted to see if someone posts the other one):

    Speak the Hungarian Rapper,
    Stop the War

    Finnish dancing for the win! Speak the Hungarian is a worthy entry, but the dancing sets this video apart.

    Yup, I remembered you talking about it before. I fixed the URL, which worked for me.

    I'll see your Finnish dancing, and raise you Hungarians rapping about "I hope my black budders feel da same like me. Yeeh. C'mon. Check dis."

    seireikhaan's video is the first one I haven't been able to get through. It's long, man. I'll try again when I'm feeling stronger.

    None of these are duds or merely mediocre videos so far. I'm impressed by the sustained, sheer awfulness of the ones we have. Keep up the good fight!

    Oh yeah, he's got some truly awful lyrics. Probably 'better' than the plain awfulness of lyrics found in "I wanna love you tender". Though that song has some electronic supersonic style use of English.

    I remember this notable little number from a couple of years ago.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NM_...eature=related

    Not only does this groups music video suck, they also managed to butcher a great hip hop classic.

    If that isn't a talent for making bad music I don't know what is.

    Gah! I did NOT watch it until the end. Got to the middle. You're right, it is horrible. Having rather heavy and not-so-great-looking-but-nevertheless-scantily-clad women is not going to compensate for a crappy song. I have no idea who the women were supposed to appeal to . I see no reason why the blokes making the video could not go to a city (yes, a city, as opposed to villages, from which they got those women from) and find women that would actually make the video more entartaining for the hordes of lustful males. That video almost seems as if it was attempting to be distasteful

    The last parts are the best, just ask Lemur.

    She has several other videos (similar to this one), and she considers herself a top notch sexy artist.

    Power Station - Get It On (Bang A Gong)

    Catchy song, but bad video even for 80's standards plus a chick who on closer examination is the famous transsexual Tula.

    Edit: Note the planes on the wall background picture with the twin towers (0:44). Classy.

    Prabhu Deva Sundaram - Kalluri Vaanil

    Its an Indian song.

    I don't know whether to call the video bad per se - it is absolutely hilarious. Also, make sure to watch the subtitles....they only make the video even more funny

    The shere number of people dancing like that unison along with the ridiculous costume changes makes this much worse than most, I'd say

    Great song TevashSzat! For some reason, I know that song...I think it's used in an ad here.

    Vanilla Ice: Ice Ice Baby

    White boy thinks he can rap. Badly. Somehow ran second in the 1990 award for best song, now considered one of the worst of all time.

    To truly understand it, you have to watch Jim Carrey do it.

    What's so exceptionally awful about this video? I'm not getting it. Must be missing something. I feel like I could turn on MTV and see a worse video in a few minutes.

    Son, this is a competition for the worst music video of all time. Don't be submitting the merely mediocre thinking you can coast through on inertia. We're looking for the worst of the worst, the lowest of the low!

    Instead, could I use this version of Prabhu Deva Sundaram - Kalluri Vaanil instead?

    This is the original video without any subtitles. I can edit my previous vote and remove the link to the funny version with subtitles.

    I've never been able to make up my mind on Tunak Tunak Tun, it's either the worst video ever made, or the best. I will look around some more, maybe even watch old Beavis and Butthead reruns.

    Are we looking for a total fail of both audio and visual proportions, or just bad video concept/implementation?

    Sure, go ahead, but that clip isn't exceptionally bad or weird by Bollywood standards. Why not this one? Much stranger.

    Or the infamous Bollywood Thriller, perhaps?

    I think we should look for a complete and epic failure. Not just bad music. Not just bad video. The whole thing should be bad on every level.

    -edit-

    I just watched Tunak Tunak Tun, and I kinda dug it. It rocks, actually. Not nearly as painful as some of the other entries so far.

    Why has nobody nominated The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins yet?
