My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #56

#56: "Lonely Boy" - Black Keys
Release Date: 2011
Director: Jesse Dylan
Fun Fact: The dancing man, Derek Tuggle is an actor, musician, and a part time security guard!
Another awesome fact is that this wasn't the original video - the original video had a script and around 40 actors and everything, but the band weren't happy with the video edit at all. They sent it back and got a re-edit which too was crap. Then they got this dude to dance spontaneously for the video! Derek was an extra on the set at the time and did a completely improvised dance for the song.

I just love this video, Derek's moves are great if not completely flawed, which gives the video and song so much character. I love how he looks a little nervous and you can tell just by looking at him that he doesn't know what moves are going to come out next. It's just a simple and lovable video that anyone can watch - it truly has to be seen if you've not seen it before!

Here's the video for your enjoyment!
