Robert Downey Jr.

Track: I Want Love
Artist: Elton John
Year: 2001

It takes a very special person to pull off a music video like this one: all we see is a man in a grey T-shirt walking around a fancy but featureless old mansion, lip-syncing to an Elton John tune. Fortunately, Robert Downey Jr. is that very special person. With lyrics chiming perfectly with the man who would be iron – “A man like me, so irresponsible” – and his return to grace still a good few years off, it’s a genuinely touching super cameo from RDJ. Elsewhere on the same album, ‘Songs From The West Coast’, Justin Timberlake dresses up as Elton himself and walks around a gig venue’s backstage area to the tune of This Train Don't Stop There Anymore – but which walk-and-dub is better, Robert’s or the Justin’s? Answers in a comment box, if you please.

6 RE: How DARE you forget...............
L: Necroscope6408 How on earth could anyone forget the late, great Freddie Mercury swordfighting with Christopher Lambert in the video for Princes of the Universe by Queen or Rhys Ifans in the excellent video for Oasis' The Importance of Being Idle. Empire, I suggest you compile a top 100 list rather than a very poor 26. Whoever put this together really does not know their "stuff." a nanosoceond - literally BLINK and you would miss him.......pity though More
