Best Music Video (2011)

"King Corpse"

There are a lot of reasons to love Lil Daggers. The neo-psychedelia meets punk is infectious in a gangrenous kind of way. And putting their sound to video only makes you realize they are worth losing a limb for. British-born director Matthew Prickett takes "King Corpse," a sloppy rock 'n' roll track off the band's self-titled debut, and makes it the soundtrack to gritty Miami street scenes. In the video, a hooded figure enters a convenience store, lifts some bottles of beer and cheap booze, and darts out the door. The shop owner runs after the figure in a sort of Wile E. Coyote-Road Runner scenario, minus the faulty Acme traps. The chase leads the viewer through a tour of dilapidated areas such as downtown and Overtown. Suddenly it ends when the shop owner can't keep up with the mysterious thief. But then comes the twist, which we won't reveal to you here. Just go watch it now.
