Is there anyone more jaw-droppingly fly that could make an appearance in a music video than Little Opie Cunningham himself, Ron Howard? Who but him could bring a level of status so high that Forrest Whitaker, Samuel L. Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Quincy Jones (among others) were willing to overlook the presence of T-Pain to show out in Jamie Foxx's video for "Blame It (On The Alcohol)?" Um. If you overlook the tired baseline concept and generic offensiveness that is typical for any mainstream R&B music video, this is so, so funny. Ron Howard? Wait, does Ron Howard have swagger? If so, is it finally dead? He gets out of the car in the beginning like he originated the game. Sorta. Hype Williams directs what is surely the glossiest of all unintentionally hilarious music videos ever created.
