Maybe I'm just grateful to see the Hives in a follow-up video to a #1 single, but I'd rate "Throw It On Me" as the best video of the mo'. Very honorable mentions: Eve doing Missy better than Gwen or Fergie, Ne-Yo debating sending his ex a letter (not a myspace message!) before calling her at a PAY PHONE (dude is old school!), Lil' Mama giving me hope for the future, The White Stripes making eyes at each other over novelty solos, Enrique Iglesias overcoming some meta bullshit with wounded passion and his beautiful beatiful face, Shop Boyz redeeming a lame rewrite of Trick Daddy's "Let's Go," QOTSA rocking in the face of death by sexy, R. Kelly and Usher getting played, Timberlake staring into your vagina as reward for putting up with four minutes of his screensaver, Maroon 5 humping their instruments as Adam Levine stares us down in a sexy airport, Linkin Park taking on the weight of the world while rocking out in the desert with a lot of gear, and The Plain White T's singing an acoustic ballad to a girlfriend in NY named, duh, Leila.
