This song probably got enough attention on the liz phair thread, but deserves to be catalogued here as well.

I'll always have a soft spot the other members of the Pretenders pointing to the word 'special' on a menu at the appropriate point of Brass In Pocket


also the giant plug and everyone pointing at the jukebox from the Antmusic video

A friend once did “Friends in Low Places” at karaoke and there was a little person wearing cowboy duds in the video.

EVERY. SINGLE. SONG in the "God Help the Girl" movie. (I'm a big B&S fan and have a pretty high tweeness tolerance, but my god, that movie was too much.)
Just one example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-ibQ5AOLno

Also kudos to Papa Roach for having that video for "Broken Home" where they actually break a home.

(particularly the bit where the lyrics are "breakthrough now" and a train breaks through (geddit?!) a wall with "NOW" spray painted on it)

And in case that wasn't subtle enough when they repeat the shot a second time they superimpose the face of a woman mouthing "NOW" on top of it.

Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet


"Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start"
[Hand throws dice]
"And I bet, and you exploded in my heart"
