8 Music Videos That Had Weird Beach Scenes

By  | 

While we can’t get enough of Cody Simpson‘s smooth vocals, we couldn’t help but notice that his newest music vid for “Angel” — which he directed himself — is basically the same exact MV as “Not Just You.” Singing on the beach. About a girl. Looking cute. We love the beach too, but making it the main setting just for the sake of it doesn’t make sense. Don’t worry, Cody’s not the only one to commit this music video faux pas.

Watch “Angel,” then cue the other vids that were filmed on the beach (for no apparent reason)!

Demi Lovato, “Skyscraper”
We have nothing but love for D.Lo’s comeback single. But why is she wearing a sweater on the beach while singing about buildings which are, mind you, particularly found in cities?

LMFAO, “Sexy and I Know It”
Strange men thrusting in leopard-print Speedos… Not our idea of a fun time by the ocean.

Beyonce, “Run the World (Girls)”
The weirdest thing about this isn’t that B’s riding a horse or banging on a car.
We’re just confused as to why (and how!) she wore heels in the sand.

Willow Smith, “21st Century Girl”
An electric guitar, a pair of sneaks, a skateboard, a convertible(!)…
This beach is better than Toys “R” Us!

Katy Perry, “Teenage Dream”
We doubt it’s every teenager’s dream to run into the water with all their clothes on

Britney Spears, “Sometimes”
Kickin’ it old school with a Brit Brit classic, we’re now wondering what’s up with all the peeps wearing white and dancing on a dock. Awkward.

J. Cole feat. Rihanna, “Can’t Get Enough”
Well, at least now we know where RiRi’s fascination with smoking came from.
On the beach though? Double ick.

Did we miss any odd beach music videos? Are you a fan of some of the ones we mentioned? Which one was the most awkward for you? Let us know!
