Best Music Video: 'Waitress' by Wet Brain

Oddly enough, this is the second music video directed by Chris LaMartina in which people gorge themselves on food—the other being Natural Velvet’s ‘Fruits.’ What sets this one apart, from that video and all other videos this year, is its badass blue-collar revolt. The members of the band are the staff at a restaurant—called Chez Wet Brain, natch—filled with uppity assholes. Finally fed up, they drug the patrons, leading to the diners shoveling plates of spaghetti down their throats, and splash beer in their faces. A terrific “fuck you” that anyone who’s worked in the service industry can understand. LaMartina’s quick cuts and shaky pans lend themselves perfectly to the energy of the song.
