Cleansing Cream by Brown Eyed Girls!

Most of the videos in our top 10 are outrageous, sweet or fun, but Cleansing Cream is none of those things. This video, released November 3, 2011, is actually rather gut-wrenching. It tells the story of a blind girl and her parents.

The young girl seems happy enough, but her behavior unnerves and angers her parents.

It gets to the point where the mother attempts to drown the girl at the end.

This seems like a pretty intense, dark theme for a music video, right? But I would suggest that the video is likely meant to be symbolic.

I believe the innocent but troublesome young girl actually represents the mother’s inner self. She’s blind to the realities of the world around her. She longs to reach out to the cold and distant husband who isn’t interested.

Knowing that her inner child is inside of her going unfilled, the mother falls into despair, and so she tries to rid herself of her playful, sweeter spirit.

However you choose to read this video, there’s no denying that the acting is incredible, and that the cinematography gives it a film-like feel. Check it out for yourself below and stop back tomorrow as we move into our top three.
