In 2007, the music video continued to prove that the rumors of its death were largely, if not greatly, exaggerated. Creative clips abounded, from Justice's ubiquitous -- but still hypnotic -- t-shirt worshipping "D.A.N.C.E." video to Snoop Dogg's retro-tastic "Sensual Seduction." It was a year inspired by Grindhouse's gritty, grainy style and grade-Z sci-fi; cannibalism was also big, as was the trend for layering live action and animation. After the jump, check out some our favorite videos from the year that was.
