Basset spotting is a sport in our house. Whether we’re fast forwarding through a commerical – “Wait, was that a basset? Rewind rewind!” – or cringing through an episode of 2 Broke Girls – “Did you see that basset hound walk past? Rewind rewind!” – basset spotting turns any viewing experience into an exciting adventure. It’s just a shame it happens so rarely. We need more bassets on TV.
Spotting basset hounds in music videos is even harder. Just as you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince, so too do you have to watch a lot of bad music videos to find one with a basset hound in. Thankfully, I’ve done the hard work for you so you can just watch these ones!
Tip: Be sure to watch each video all the way through to make sure you see all the basset bits.

Not only is the basset hound the coolest dog in this video (coz it’s the DJ), it’s also the only dog which gets a kiss. I think we know why.
There’s also Nelly’s ‘Ride Wit Me’ video, which has a basset hound riding in a truck (blink and you’ll miss it) and there MUST be a video in some vault somewhere of Elvis singing to a basset hound, but apart from that, I know of no other basset hounds in music videos. But maybe you do?? Comment below if you do!
