4. "Otis" (2011)

Director: Spike Jonze
Album: Watch the Throne

This is easily one of the most entertaining videos either Kanye or Jay-Z has ever released. The two look like they're having the time of their lives, which you don't see everyday. Who else can destroy then customize a Maybach and then drag race it around an industrial lot. The video is primarily a performance piece with the two rappers (and Aziz Ansari, and a gang of models, briefly) goofing off and stunting for director Spike Jonze. We've never seen the Throne like we did in "Otis," and we likely never will again. It was a major moment, so much so that the car was later auctioned off. (The proceeds went to the East African Drought Disaster.)
