Fan made music videos featuring The Sims aren’t exactly new. Electronic Arts kind of blew the lid off of the underground nerd hobby last spring when they had Lilly Allen make a video for “Smile” in which she sang the song in Simlish, the Sims language. (I had to look it up. Take it easy, nerds.) Still, have you seen these things lately? They are the funniest thing.
I was going to collect all the best fan made Sims music videos, but the indie rock ones were so boring. And they hardly put any work into the indie rock avatars. Why, that doesn’t look anything like Andrew WK. The hip hop videos featuring Sims, however, those are the Real Talk of Sims videos. They don’t play games.
After the jump, the 10 Best Fan Made Hip Hop Videos with Sims of All Time, son.
10. R. Kelly (feat. Usher) – “Same Girl”
9. Akon (feat. Snoop Dogg) – “I Wanna Fuck You”
8. M.I.A. – “Galang”
7. Lil Mama – Lip Gloss
6. Lil Wayne – “Lollipop”
5. Rihanna (feat. Jay-Z) – “Umbrella”
4. 50 Cent (feat. Justin Timberlake) – “Ayo Technology”
3. Kanye West – “Gold Digger”
2. Beyonce – “Irreplaceable”
1. UGK (feat. Outkast) – “Int’l Player’s Anthem”
EDITOR’S NOTE: the Sims video for Soulja Boy’s “Crank Dat” would definitely have been on this list if the user who made it had made it embeddable, but since it’s not it will be relegated to HONORABLE MENTION.
These are the future of entertainment. By the year 2018 I predict everything will be rendered in Sims and compressed into pill form. And then one day someone will pretend to swallow their Entertainment Medicine but actually hide it under their tongue, and they will be the Chosen One who leads humanity in a revolution back to its roots of being stupid about what’s great, because we were doing really well in 2018.
