Getting your music video played on MTV was the goal of almost every musical act in the 1980s and 1990s. (Yes, kids: MTV actually used to play music videos instead of a 24/7 loop of Real World/Road Rules Challenge). And there was nothing to make your music video stand out like have a celebrity – or multiple celebrities – show up for a cameo.
I mean, who could deny the celebrity firepower of Rodney Dangerfield, Milton Berle or Ally Sheedy. One of them appearing in your music video = instant hit!
We break down the best – and strangest – celebrity music video cameos ever. Jeff’s had enough of Michael and Richard’s shenanigans, so he’s brought in some help – his brother Sam! It’s double the Hopkins, double the judgments.
