Music videos and marketing continue to meld. As we have seen before, more artists are turning from simply featuring a product, such as a smartphone or watch, in their music videos to dedicating entire songs to advertising.

Pop superstar Usher is the latest artist to follow this trend.

He and Samsung Televisions collaborated to create this ‘Looking 4 Myself’ music video which showcases the new South Korean motion controlled TV’s from Samsung, as well as Usher participating in some epic Matrix-inspired fighting.

YouTuber  has been covering famous songs on their account for sometime now with almost no views, but they just recently got a break after being featured on VideoGum and Tosh.0. Now, the older gentleman’s karaoke cover of Usher’s DJ Got Us Fallin In Love has gone viral. The best part is how he sings the chorus–with proper English. ‘Because baby tonight, the DJ has got us falling in love again…’

Now that I see it, it’s so obvious. Usher’s hit song, More, is perfect to spoof with the movie Thor. Is anyone sick of super hero movies yet? Apparently not at all. Keep em coming Marvel.
