Furry Friday: Top 20 Music Videos Featuring Animals
JACK FM’s Animal Style Stick-Up is on and if you want to break the internet, photoshop laser-eyed kitten gifs onto drones shaped like Justin Bieber, hashtag the whole experience, and let Google work its magic. So, even though the internet was essentially backed by people who like instant access to pictures of naked ladies, the biggest heroes of our internet times are the four-pawed ones, the furry ones, and the grumpy ones. Why do you think Grumpy Cat had a feature film green-lit recently?
Even though there is that old adage “never work with kids and animals,” our little furry friends have always had a place in our hearts and our mass-consumed media. Especially in music. Remember Nipper the Victrola dog from the early 1900s?
Whether animated, dudes in costumes, or a ferocious beast probably best suited for the jungle, here’s our video list of 20 music videos containing animals.
