So if you want to sell more records or get more airplay, it’s hardly rocket science to suggest that putting a sexy celebrity in your video is going to increase your chances of success tenfold.
It’s a winning formula – you only need look at the songs below to see that. There are couple of half-decent tracks here, but, let’s face it, they are mostly rubbish.
But yet, thanks to us, they are getting played once again. Damn those super marketing boffins – we fell for it again.
Anyway, enjoy having a good look – you can always turn the sound down.
18. Mischa Barton

Pamela Anderson gobbles four musicians – just a typical day.
16. Evan Rachel Wood

Waking up next to Evan Rachel Wood at any time would be good.

We can only assume he was paid a lot of money for this.

Fountains of who?
