16. D.A. - "Glowing"
Director: Wolf Haley/Tyler, The Creator
If the name Tyler, The Creator has you assuming that this video will be based on shock-value or full of childish silliness, you're in for a pleasant surprise. The video for "Glowing" by a mystery artist (now revealed to be D.A. Wallach, once of Chester French) is—as with many of Tyler's videos—full of vivid colors, and memorable images. What's most interesting about this video is how far removed from Tyler's usual work it is, mixing found-footage of disasters and tragedies with images of a couple growing older together, idyllic even amongst the carnage. It's a touching, heartwarming video, a welcome addition to Tyler's fast-growing body of work.—Constant Gardner
