Puppetry and claymation are forms of animation that largely disappeared in the late 20th and early 21st Centuries, mostly because they're incredibly expensive and time consuming to make. However, music videos seem to really love these old forms of animation, and these 12 videos in particular really took the art to its weirdest limits.
Genesis - "Land of Confusion"
Weird claymation dinosaurs and band members make for a pretty unforgettable video.
Alice In Chains - "I Stay Away"
It's a trip to the weirdest carnival of all time, and the visuals just make it even weirder.
Blackstreet - "No Diggity"
One of the all time great summer jams just decides to go into weird puppet territory for a while. We still don't get why.
Primus - "The Devil Went Down To Georgia"
Let's be fair; Primus have made their entire careers on being weird, so this video really isn't all that surprising.
Eminem - "A** Like That"
Crank Yankers was a prank phone call show where the calls were animated with puppets, and Eminem liked it enough to hire the staff for this video ode to jailbait.
