Gondry A Go-Go

Let's have a show in honor of Michel Gondry, known as the director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and the Science of Sleep, but even more so as the director of some wonderful music videos. But did you know that Gondry himself used to be in a pop band? The band is Oui-Oui (that's Noddy in French), and of course he directed their videos in his inimitable style:

Now here's a great video he made for little-known French pop singer, Jean-Francois Coen. The video plays with the song lyrics and is full of fun little jokes (that is, if you know French). I didn't know that the song was a cover though, thanks YouTube comments!

His best work has got to be his White Stripes lego video for Fell in Love with a Girl. Even though it won't qualify as "obscure", I'll include it here, cause it's just such a fun one (and I love Lego).
