Musical Interlude: Hey Ya! (2003)

Outkast's biggest video success came with the release of "Hey Ya!", off Andre 3000's "The Love Below". Actor Ryan Philippe guest stars as the British MC who introduces the band in a sequence that rarely saw the light of day on MTV back in the day. Andre plays all 8 members of the band, continuing a multiple exposure tradition that began, appropriately, with British silent film legend Buster Keaton, and continued into the rock era with two more British stars---Paul McCartney and Phil Collins.

Like, rad, man.
