The best videos today were inspired from the videos that have been produced by the biggest artists over the years.

They say that good artists borrow, and great artists steal, but let’s face it the best artists just do what they know and achieve greatness without having to go around caring what anyone else has done.
In this weeks Music Video Throwback, we revisit the magic of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mariah Carey[/lastfm]‘s “Honey.” The running in high heels, the campy acting and diving off balcony towers all equal awesome!
First of all, Mariah goes by the code name Agent M because this is a spoof of some sort of Mission Impossible video making even more awesome.
Everyone was really shocked by Mariah Carey’s performance in Glitter but if you check out her extending acting in the beginning of the video it should be a real clear indication that her acting style is totally over-the-top.
If that’s not enough, she kicks a little bit, takes a few names and then jumps off a balcony into a pool where she disrobes and runs in a bikini out of the pool. Are you following along? It’s awesome and ridiculous just like Mimi!
Most of the video jump cuts between Mariah singing while white fabric flows around her and her being chased by bad guys. This really makes no sense, but we love it. We always have.
However, the best part is the big dance number in the middle where Mariah is surrounded by hunky sailor dancers and together they dance in unison.
Mariah, like one would assume, defeats the bad guys and all is right with the world. Especially, the fact that this video exists. It’s a worthwhile throwback.
Don’t you agree?
