    25. Young Money ft. Tyga, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj - "Senile"

    Director: Colin Tilley

    In the "Senile" video, Lil Wayne proudly wears an Odd Future shirt. If you're cynical, you might see this as a branding move���a way for Lil Wayne to attach him to something younger and fresher. I like to see it as a tip of the hat from an honest fan and kindred creative spirit. The video looks like something Tyler, The Creator would appreciate.

    Director Colin Tilley (also: "Wiggle") livens up the elaborate scenes of "Senile" with over-the-top imagery and the vivid contrast of bright colors. He also plays movement against stillness (see Wayne rapping in a living family photo at the 2:30 mark) for a slightly creepy vibe that matches the tone of that mischievous production. It's one of the most detail-oriented videos of the year, but it's also one of the most fun.—Jacob Moore
