My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #95

#95: "The Salmon Dance" - The Chemical Brothers
Release Date: 2007
Director: Dom and Nic
Fun Fact: The "teenage boy" is actually actor Rory Jennings. He's 31 now so that makes him aged 23 when he was in the video!
For some reason this video is really understated. It's a fantastic bit of CGI, something you don't really see to this level of expertise and quality very often. It's like a mini Finding Nemo to be honest, without the storyline!

Basically the boy is hallucinating and seeing all his fish talking and dancing. I suppose that's not funny but the video itself is very entertaining. I love Puffa, the beatboxing pufferfish - he's so cool. Also Sammy the salmon (who actually isn't a salmon but a squirrel fish) with his facts is very entertaining. I love how Fatlip puts up with his "facts" until the end, pretending to be interested before asking for everyone to give him a round of applause. It's just a very entertaining video that deserves more attention that it gets.

Note: This is the first and last video from the year 2007 in this list.

Here's the video for your enjoyment!
