Best Vids I've Seen So Far- 2006 Edition

It's that time of year once again where we look back at the past year with the list of the best.
And just like last year, I kicked off the series of lists with the Best Vids I've seen so far.
The list consists of vids envisioned by some of the most creative folks whether they be video music directors or not. The key words here are, I've seen so far, since there are so many vids I'm sure I've neglected. The past year, we've seen how YouTube became a viral component in making videos accessible. It also allowed even amateurs to make their own or record live music, etc as well.
I wish I had time to explain why I picked each vid, but I thought the vids can speak for themselves.
