Music Videos: Gnarls Barkley

"Who's Gonna Save My Soul" was one of "The Odd Couple"'s instant standouts, and now it's got its very own video. The song is completely heartbreaking from start to finish (and 100% of the credit goes to Cee-Lo... it's not the instruments, it's not the lyrics, it's that VOICE), but they still manage to use their usual crazy-ass style in the video even under such tragic circumstances.

By the way, in case you were on the fence about taking time out of your day to watch the whole thing, the video features a human heart singing the blues on a countertop using a piece of broccoli as a microphone before giving up and stabbing itself and apparently giving birth to the person that the heart came from as it dies. I made none of that up, it's all in there.
