Sweep the Leg

Okay, let me set the scene for you: A couple of years after the events of The (original) Karate Kid, Johnny Lawrence's parents have another child, and emigrate to Toronto. The Lawrence's second child is a precocious little girl and, desiring nothing but the best for their little one, they decide to change their last name to Simone because the name Lawrence makes people think of guys like this. 25 years or so go by and Johnny's little sister is all grown up, looking good, and sharing her big brother's penchant for creepy skull-oriented face paint. No, seriously, it's creepy. But possibly the best music video I've seen in the last 10 years. No weird subtexts, no bullshit social messages, and no stupid hats. Maybe even the best music video since this one.
