Spike Jonze has to be one of the most inspired Americans of the last decade or so. His direction has created original and amazing music videos for a wide variety of music artists, original and creative commercials, and wildly bizarre films (both written by Charlie Kaufman). Watch some of his videos. These are just a few of my favorites.
Pharcyde - "Drop"
Fatboy Slim - "Praise You" : Spike is the leader of the dance group
Kanye West - "Flashing Lights"Being John Malkovich
Weezer - "Buddy Holly" : The old Happy Days group
Bjork - "It's Oh So Quiet"
Fatboy Slim - "Weapon of Choice" : Starring Christopher Walken
Beastie Boys - "Sabotage"
