1. Weird Al

Weird Al launched a viral video campaign last year. He put out 8 music videos in 8 days leading up to the release of Mandatory Fun. The result? Tons of publicity, hundreds of thousands of views and Weird Al's first #1 album ever! EVER! It was also the first comedy album to be #1 since 1963!!! Now if that doesn't show how important music videos can be I don't know what does!
