    Yeah, it's friggin Nickleback but the "he's a ghost!" twist at the end is pretty good



    4 of 5

    The placement of the singer as a "greek chorus" on the action is really good and the moment when the whole family "crashes" is jaw-dropping

    Friggin Finch, goddamnit! Also yet another twist in the finale but very well done. But, mostly, Finch goddamnit!

    The cinematography in this video is fantastic.Generally, I absolutely hate it when music videos stop for the "acting and dialogue" part but it totally works here for some weird reason. And it gets kinda appropriately brutal near the end. And Scarjo!

    The backwardness is insanely ingenious. Backwards! Yeah, it's Coldplay but the song is great and the music video is great. Hey, a broken clock is right twice once a day.



    For those who don't think this is appropriate for Easter, hey, what is Easter unless it's all about death and resurrection? Which is totally apropos and a thing in all 5 videos. Also, why are there so many music videos about car crashes?! I don't get it! But might as well rank it.

    That Coldplay song sucks ass, the singer is a ponce, and the backwards gimmick was ripped from the Pharcyde.

    It is genuinely hard to tell with Al. Gibberish is, frankly, gibberish.
