So occasionally it turns out some bands hire a good director and a good idea is formed to turn a bunch of your tracks into a mini series of music videos. Daft Punk did this with their Discovery album which pumped out the movie Interstella 5555 and it was really good, however a bit disjointed because really most people just saw their One More Time video and forgot about the rest. But this isn’t about Daft Punk, this is about Mr. F Durst and his mini series with Limp Bizkit.
Limp Bizkit – Nookie
Man, Limp Biz is so hardcore! Went for that typical Nu Metal video where you have your stage built somewhere in the city and it gets surrounded by fans. Even better is the idea that Fred Durst can walk down any given neighbourhood and be followed by women. But the video ends well because his ass gets thrown into a car by the fuzz and it’s off to Federal Pound me in the Ass Prison…
Limp Bizkit – Re-Arranged
Yay! They’re in Federal Pound me in the Ass Prison, which is apparently not a bad place to be since everyone gets to keep their instruments in their cells and play music together. Man the Prison system is too good to these guys for all their crimes against the music industry. Apparently the band felt prosecuted for what happened at Woodstock ’99 which basically no one remembers or cares about anymore (or at the time). So how do you get rid of them, death by milk drowning while they get to play their instruments. How artistic!
Limp Bizkit – N 2 Gether Now (ft. Method Man)
And to cap things off they drag the great Method Man (of the Wu-Tang Clan) into the mix. Poor MM, having to dress-up like Fred Durst and then having to put up with his game cheating non-sense to boot. Even thought it’s all bullshit Method Man seems to make the most fun of things even with this video pulling out Pauly Shore of all people to have a terrible cameo. Thankfully this shit is over and Limp Biz never did another video series again, however for the most part of all their other videos, they got as many celebrities to do cameos because MTV said they had to.
