Half the fun of making a thematic music video is getting to be someone else for a day. From hilarious outfits to sweet makeup jobs, check out some of the coolest transformations below.

All Time Low – “Something’s Gotta Give”

Seeing frontman Alex Gaskarth hobble around in a fry costume is peak entertainment, but the impressive zombie makeup on the entire band is a close second.

Blink-182 – “All The Small Things”

From camo pants to all-white ensembles, only Blink-182 could make a mockery of the Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, *NYSNC, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera — and get away with it.

Waterparks – “Crave”

The contrast between the real dogs and Waterparks dressed as dogs makes this video twice as entertaining.

Panic! At The Disco – “Emperor’s New Clothes”

Picking up where “This Is Gospel” left off, “Emperor’s New Clothes” finds frontman Brendon Urie in the underworld, violently transforming into the devil through layers of impressive makeup and costuming.

Good Charlotte – “I Just Wanna Live”

Good Charlotte get rebranded as the Food Group with their hit single “All U Can Eat” and complete the look with costumes. Seeing them try to play their instruments as a carrot, slice of pizza, ear of corn, strawberry and a burger is the highlight of the video.

Sleeping With Sirens – “Do It Now, Remember It Later”

Sleeping With Sirens find themselves on a faux news show in which frontman Kellin Quinn adopts the attire of an anchorman — oversized glasses and all.

Green Day – “Bang Bang”

Green Day robs a bank — or at least that’s what the cartoonish masks imply until the plot twist at the end.
