Keri Hilson - Knock You Down

This is in my "Best of YouTube" series. You can find the intro here.

This video was a surprise for me.
After the sex-charged atmosphere of the first video, followed by the three-minute profanity exercise of the last video, I was not expecting much out of this one.  Three Hip-Hop artists collaborating on one video made me pretty pessimistic.
However, this video was a surprise.  It contained even less "physical advertisement" than the #3-ranked Miley Cyrus video, and contained only one piece of profanity (and a tame one, at that).  The story is easily followed through the whole video, and flashes of a continuing shot of Keri Hilson falling onto a bed are laced throughout the whole video.  They tie the whole thing together very nicely.  The lyrics are the story, so the video is essentially a moving narration of the story the song is weaving.  It most certainly works very well.
I like it.
