The Baron's daughter is missing, and you are the man to find her. No problem. With your inexhaustible arsenal of hard-boiled similes, there is nothing you can't handle.

I love music videos that are basically little short movies who manage to tell a coherent story in 3-5 minutes with no dialogue.

This one deserves way more views:

If you didn't get the plot twist at the end, the writer explained it in the comments:
"I wrote the storyline, so I'll give you the full run down. Katherine is right, he went undercover as a cop, but when he was undercover, the cult (RAC) turned him to their ideals. In this case the cult's ideals were to rise into the next life with your loved ones. The only thing was, the cult members weren't his loved ones. In the end of the video he gives a toast, and all of his cops friends drink to his success. WHAT YOU DON'T SEE is that he actually poisoned the keg that everyone is drinking from. As he walks away with the tattoo on his wrist, he's stepping over people who have been poisoned, unfortunately, due to all of the anti-cop drama that was going on at the time, we couldn't show the shot of the cops dropping, so the viewer is missing a crucial point in the story."

From the same artist, I am also a fan of this one, about a guy who is dating female Hannibal Lecter:

This is particularly amusing because the mask she is wearing takes on a completely new significance nowadays.

Is this a trailer for The Last of Us?

Anyway, this thread wouldn't be complete without Miike Snow's classic Bond pastiche, which also spawned a ton of Tumblr fan-art:

My apologies for the poor video quality (maybe someone here can find a better version of this), but here is the full version of Dragon's "Dreams of Ordinary Men", featuring the extra dialogue with Bruce "Mouth of Sauron" Spence.

This is why you shouldn't harass homeless people, because they may be psychotic beat-poets who will pursue you across the country...

There's definitely a narrative here.

Posting animated videos is cheating, but the video for Mystery Skulls' Ghost is pretty great.

The three sequel videos are pretty great as well, but aren't really self contained.

Bastille's Send Them Off is a nice little tale of confronting demons that turn out to be your own and achieving gnostic enlightenment.

But the best narrative music video is the one Studio Ghibli did for On Your Mark. It's removed from youtube but here's a dailymotion link.
