Top 5 Funniest Videos Nominated for MMVAs
There are some goofs in this year’s lineup of MMVA-nominated artists and we love it! While their songs may not be particularly comedic, several MMVA nominated musicians went the silly route for their videos and there are a lot of dorky outfits to show for it.
Below, we’ve rounded up the five funniest videos nominated for MMVAs this year. Take a look, then tune in to the MMVAs this Sunday, June 15 at 9E/6P on Much, CTV and CTV GO to see if they win.
1. Sonreal, Everywhere We Go
SonReal goes full Napoleon Dynamite in this video for “Everywhere We Go,” which snagged MMVA nominations for Video of the Year and Hip Hop Video of the Year, among others. For his goofy parody, the rapper wears a bowl-cut wig, braces, and a turtleneck with a denim vest. So he basically looks like a 1980s mom.
2. Hedley, Anything
Hedley’s “Anything” video opens with a self-consciously “pretentious” monologue, and devolves into greasy, tattoed, naked debauchery. There’s a dude taking a bath in Froot Loops. And a dude taking a bite out of a Barbie doll. This looks like the sort of party Miley Cyrus couldn’t/wouldn’t be able to stop hanging out at.
3. Keys N Krates, Dum Dee Dum
What would Mennonites make of electronic music? That’s the premise behind Keys N Krates’ mockumentary video for “Dum Dee Dum,” which follows director Mike Howey as he makes a bunch of Mennonites listen to his iPod. Unsurprisingly, they dig it.
4. D-Sisive, Friend of Mine
D-Sisive gets a Mini Me in the video for “Friend of Mine,” which features his cute kid doppelganger (in glasses, of course) lip-synching the whole song. The little munchkin even has a fake sleeve to make him look more like the rapper himself.
5. Classified ft. B.o.B., Higher
Classified’s video for Higher pays homage to John Hughes’ teen sci-fi classic Weird Science, which is apparently getting a full-blown remake sometime in the near-ish future. In this version, however, there’s more weed. A lot more.

Singer-songwriter Regina Spektor has been releasing inventive and beautiful records for years, though she’s flown somewhat under the radar of mainstream music fans. Starting in 2003, Spektor began gaining traction while opening for bands like The Strokes, Kings of Leon and Keane, but it was her 2006 record Begin to Hope that really kicked Spektor’s […]
If there’s one person who knows how to be a bawse, it’s Lilly Singh. The YouTube star has become one of the most beloved personalities online in the past few years thanks to her message of positivity and embracing what it means to be unique. Raised in Toronto, Singh began making YouTube videos in 2010 […]
Country music tends to ebb and flow with Top 40 radio, where one year the Dixie Chicks are making people revaluate this dislike for twang, it may be another few years until an artist like Taylor Swift comes along and does the same bridging of the gap. While a country takeover is always simmering, this […]
Instead of catching ghosts (or Pokémon) this week, Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones had the unfortunate task of busting the most unseemly creatures 2016 has to offer: Twitter trolls. Yesterday, Jones visited Late Night with Seth Meyers to discuss the Twitter trolls she encountered in response to the Ghostbusters movie. With her recent return back to Twitter […]
Amy Winehouse had a voice much bigger than her five-foot-something stature. When Back to Black went double platinum nearly a year after its release, this tiny kid from the U.K. had the world wondering, “What is this girl about?” My story with Winehouse started before she became a household name. As July 23 marks five years since […]
