What's the worst video ever? Don't you dare say ''Hello''

10115__hello_lApparently, viewers of the Box, a British cable network, are blind when it comes to music videos, since they voted Lionel Richie’s ”Hello” (left) as the worst clip of all time. I’d be totally defending the riveting tale of Prof. Richie wooing a sight-impaired sculptress, but our friends at Stereogum have done one better, concocting a high-larious storyboard (scroll down). While the poll’s runner-up, ”Ebony and Ivory,” is pretty abysmal, it’s nowhere near as bad as Chaka Khan‘s ”I Feel for You,” or R. Kelly‘s ”Thoia Thong,” or Don Johnson’s ”Heartbeat,” or even Debbie Gibson‘s ”Electric Youth.”

What’s your pick for the worst video ever? Holla back!
