Unscripted Moments: 6 Music Videos that Film Closer to the Fans with Real Life Situations

Music has the ability to alter emotions, encourage large crowds, and change ideas. Unscripted moments in music videos can highlight the power music has with fans and an audience.Here are 6 music videos that throw the script and film with the public:

Rage Against the Machine-Sleep Now in the Fire

Michael Moore directed this video of Rage Against the Machine playing in protest on the steps of the palace of financial ideology, otherwise known as the New York Stock Exchange. Here is a political band that walked their talk, and stripped the power platform for a day by causing the doors to close. The symbol of the New York Stock Exchange was turned on its head, and into a stage.

Bright Eyes-First Day of My Life

The people in this video pop on some headphones, and share their reactions to the song "First Day of My Life"by Bright Eyes. It's not a new concept, but the power of the song plays out through the expressions on their faces, in genuine moments of love and affection.

Arcade Fire-The Wilderness Downtown "We Used to Wait"

Arcade Fire teamed up with Google Chrome and Chris Milk to create an interactive music video. The video turns into a personal experience as the street in your home town is incorporated into the scene. Arcade Fire and the video becomes part of your history.

Katy Perry-Birthday

Katy Perry dressed up in disguise and crashed five real birthday parties as a terrible entertainer for this video. In this prank epic, she just about reaches a creative peak we could celebrate, except for her inability to stop parading around using stereotypes.

U2-Where the Streets Have No Name

U2 used the rooftop of a liquor store in Los Angeles as a stage in this music video. It turns out that some of it was set up, but drawing a crowd to experience music in the middle of the day breaks up the mindless stride, and creates new energy. It also prompts authorities to stop all the fun.

Fatboy Slim-Praise You

Spike Jonze directed this music video with a fake dance group performing in a public space. It's like the most awkward flash mob you'll ever witness. It was brilliant and cheap, and the faces of the onlookers are priceless.
