Every now and then, we’ll come across a “successful” fictional musician that — you got it, releases a full-length music video for an original song within their respective film or TV show. Unlike the fake music videos that merely string together inconsequential scenes from footage we’ve already seen, the ones we’re noting are tiny, ridiculous masterpieces in themselves. Want some lovin’? Rex Manning’s got a whole music video about bringing it to your front door. Need a pink-haired Jonathan Rhys Meyers to glam up your life? We’ve got that, too. Kick back and enjoy as some daring actors fulfill their inner pop star fantasies in these over-the-top, awesomely fake music videos, and sorry in advance for getting these silly songs stuck in your head. You may proceed.
“Say No More (Mon Amour),” Empire Records
With lyrics like “lips are for kissing, baby, say no more,” can you blame Liv Tyler’s Empire Records character for falling in love with Rex Manning? He’ll answer your English questions in French, toss wine in your face, and essentially tell you to be quiet so he can t’adore all over you. It’s been said before, but “oh Rexy, you’re so sexy.”
