My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #42

#42: "Without Me" - Eminem
Release Date: 2002
Director: Joseph Kahn
Fun Fact: The song got to #1 in at least 13 countries!
This is definitely Eminem's best video when it comes to comedy, it's just from start to finish, a barrel of laughs with many parodys, some at his critics and others just generally flung at other people.

I remember seeing the video when it came out and it was the first time I really paid attention to Eminem as an entertainer as well as a rapper, because while previous videos were good, this one set the bar and frankly, it's never really been beat when it comes to the amount that's been jam packed into one music video. Everything from the cartoon strip to Dr Dre as his hero sidekick, to stroking a bald head, to dressing up as Bin Laden is top quality here and you sometimes forget how damn good this video is until you watch it again.
Note: This is the fourth and last video from the year 2002 in this list.

Here's the video for your enjoyment!
