The 50 Most WTF Celebrity Cameos In Music Video History

By Frank Donovan

When news broke that Justin Bieber and Tom Hanks (?!) were spotted on the set of Carly Rae Jepsen’s new music video for “I Really Like You,” it got us thinking of other totally random celebrity cameos in music videos over the years. Christopher Walken’s high-flying dance in the Spike Jonze-directed “Weapon of Choice” is the first to come to mind, but we dug even deeper to find the most random of the random cameos.

Music videos typically use a one to one ratio of artist to rando, like Jason Alexander in Nickelback’s “Trying Not to Love You,” or Zach Galifianakis in Fiona Apple’s “Not About Love.” Michael Jackson however did not follow this model in “Liberian Girl.” Much-loved randos Steve Guttenberg, David Copperfield, and Lou Ferrigno are just the tip of the cameo iceberg. In fact, you’d need 5 tweets to fit all the celebs who showed up! Now that’s random.

Enjoy our roundup of 50 videos with completely unexpected celeb appearances.
