The Celebrity Cameo is a music video staple. This is especially true in Country Music videos these days, and I don't mean that as a bad thing. Country music has always been about storytelling so country music videos are always more interesting by default. Throwing in a celebrity cameo just makes it that much more entertaining. Non country music videos these days always seem to be the generic "people playing instruments/singing straight into the camera", with some generic choreography happening in the back ground. Whereas country music videos are always trying to tell a story. And I'd much prefer seeing a known face as part of that story then some random actor.
It seems the go to choice for cameos this year is the cast of Duck Dynasty. They've already appeared in at least two music videos in the past few months.
The first was Darius Rucker's video for Wagon Wheel
and just recently in Tyler Farr's new video for Redneck Crazy
And those are both good videos (I'm particularly fond of Redneck Crazy) but the lifetime achievement award for Celebrity Cameo's still goes to Brad Paisley and his video for "Online"
If you have a favorite music video cameo let me know.
