Music Video Hall of Fame… George Michael “Freedom! ’90”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

How do you make a relevant music video for one of the biggest artist at the time and not include said artist? You hire every top supermodel you can, tell them to lip sync his song, put them in sexy and compromising situations, add imagery of his past success being destroyed, hire a uber-stylish video director, add a great pop song with a lot of soul and funk to it and you have a recipe for brilliance. George Michael did the impossible, he served us one of the best music videos of all time and he did it so cleverly that we even forgot that he wasn’t in his own video. Filmed at the height of the supermodel craze and at a time where music videos were growing up, not only was this video relevant, but it still holds up as one the most stylish, and sexiest, music videos to date. Well done George.
