Girl Talk, also known as Gregg Gillis, is known for his songs made entirely of samples from songs by Beyonce to Hall & Oates to 2 Live Crew. And while his albums are split into shorter tunes, in truth, they all bleed into one another to make one giant song. Which is probably why you wouldn't assume that he'd ever make a video for any of his music. (Besides the licensing.) How could he, when the mood shifts more or less every twenty seconds?
