Foo Fighters: Big Me

I forgot how good this song was. I also totally forgot that the entire video is a parody of a Mentos commercial. But it was just the beginning of a whole slew of Foo Fighters parody videos.

There's "Learn to Fly," which riffs off the movie Airplane. Then there's "Everlong," a Michael Gondry-directed take on The Evil Dead. The video for "Walk" was apparently inspired by the 1993 movie Falling Down. But these are just a sampling of a ton of excellent videos. Can't forget "Monkey Wrench," wherein the band meets carbon copies of themselves in Dave Grohl's apartment. Join me in falling down a Foo Fighters video YouTube hole. There are so many good ones to choose from, and 19 years later "Big Me" still holds up.
