Think of it as 'Celebrity Deathmatch' video style. In May of 2009, brokencool pitted Eminem's "3 AM" against Matchbox Twenty's "3 AM" in a video battle that had blood, Mexicans, Hannah Montana and more. The video battle (a good name for this feature is forthcoming) will return to brokencool.com soon. In the meantime, hit the jump to see who won the battle way back in '09.
What video has more blood?
It was close but Eminem just edges out Rob Thomas for most blood in the video. Chalk one up for Shady.
Is anyone able to utilize Mexicans in cowboy hats?
Surprisingly the answer is yes as Matchbox Twenty somehow make this work. I have no clue what the purpose of the Mexican guy in the cowboy hat is...but hey, Em didn't do it. 1 up for Thomas and friends.
Does anyone fantasize about jerking off to Hannah Montana?
You betcha. It's clear that Rob Thomas was going in a different lyrical direction than Eminem on this one. Shady grabs the aloe and goes to town. 1 more for Marshall.
Who manages to utilize the most white people in their video?
In a shocker, Matchbox Twenty win this. I couldn't count the mannequins in Eminem's video...it wouldn't be fair.
What video is most suitable for kids?
Eminem's video is disgusting, gruesome and horrific...but we don't really want kids listening to Matchbox Twenty do we? Point goes to Shady.
It was close but in the end Eminem's "3 AM" edges out Matchbox Twenty's "3 AM" 3-2 in the battle of songs about...uh...the time of night when you're either drinking, sexin' or sleepin'.
