How many times have the words "It's not you
it's me" been thrown around to save face when breaking up with someone? Well, in their brand new video for "Who's Gonna Save My Soul" off The Odd Couple album, Gnarls Barkley has taken this age-old cliché and has graphically illustrated what it feels like to be on the receiving end of a break-up. Not only did they think out of the box on this one, but they thought outside of the box around that one to come up with a somber, suicidal heart that croons into a broccoli floret in order to really hit it home.

Cee-Lo and deejay Danger Mouse of Gnarls Barkley by Jamie McCarthy/WireImage.com
MTV has announced that it will not play the video for "Run," the first single from Gnarls Barkley's new album. (Wait, MTV plays music videos? When?)Gnarls, the odd collaboration of hip-hop singer Cee-Lo and deejay Danger Mouse that yielded the sleeper hit "Crazy," is known for their wacky costumes and innovative music videos. But it turns out that this clever clip has been banned from the airwaves for failing the Harding Test, which measures whether video images will trigger epileptic seizures. (So watch at your own risk!)The video features Justin Timberlake as the host of an early-'90s, Yo! MTV Raps-style program called City Vibin, but about two minutes in, the clip is overtaken by some psychedelic, op-art imagery that apparently makes some people's cabezas go all woo-woo. On the upside: The retro duo's new jam is crazy-fresh. You heard it here second!Gnarls' new album, The Odd Couple, drops on April 8. Mickey O'Connor
Good lord, JT. Is there anything you arent in these days? The pop-star/actor made a cameo in Gnarls Barkleys recent video premiere for the new song Run off his upcoming album The Odd Couple. Timberlake appears as the afro-sportin host of a Dance Party USA-esque show that features this vertigo-inducing video (consider yourself warned because those retro-effects take their toll on your equilibrium). Your take: So what do you think of JTs cameo? What about the video? Does it make you wanna bust out into the running man, or start convulsing?
