Some people watch music videos with their eyes peeled for celebrity cameos. Others focus on the artists' fashion choices, zeroing in on vintage Air Jordans or unreleased designer garbs. And then, of course, there are the maniacs who just look for signs of Illuminati brainwashing.

Needless to say, what gets us most fired up is FOOD in our favorite videos—the way certain restaurants set the scene for the song, or the way grub serves as a pivotal prop in the action. We also enjoy when food just shows up randomly in the midst of the visual smorgasbord—take, for example, Snoop Dogg's "Gangster Love" video, when a sexy lady starts feeding Snoop Dogg noodles in the back of a car for no apparent reason.

To wit, here are our favorite food-related music video moments of all time. As you might have guessed, we watch a lot of rap videos, but we also appreciate classics in any genre. Don't see your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
