My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #38

#38: "Slam" - Pendulum
Release Date: 2005
Director: Adam Brown
Fun Fact: Pendulum were quite a new group at this point, but they gathered enough momentum to finally create this as their first official music video... it was their fifth single!
You may not have seen this video... and I almost don't want to tell you what happens in it (nor for you to see the picture below), but it's too much of the video to ignore really.

The first part of this video is basically this overweight guy in a business suit, eating, minding his own business just chilling. Then all of a sudden, he just... strips his shirt and jacket off, puts his tie around his head and starts dancing in front of possibly hundreds of people!

It's just a fantastic video, sure, it may put you off your dinner if you don't like to see the sight of flesh bouncing everywhere, but it doesn't bother me in the slightest, and frankly, he can probably dance better than you anyway! The guy isn't the best dancer, but hell, he has some fantastic moves, and not only that but great credit to him for doing what he does. I mean, it is an actor in the end but regardless, it takes balls to be overweight and to dance in public! I find it very inspiring in a certain way, and a lot of the people in the crowd are supporting him giving him water and dancing with him sometimes... that is until the end of the video! It's just a great video, one I really think you should see if you haven't before!

Here is the video for your enjoyment!
