Children, the future of the world. They're so tiny and irresistibly cute, so why not feature them in music videos?
Everyone from Eminem to Britney Spears has called upon adorable kids to appear in their videos. Take a look at some of the cutest features below:
Missy Elliot - "Work It"
Alyson Stoner, the talented little girl with pigtails, is probably the most recognized music video kid of all time. Missy loved Alyson so much, she cast her in two more videos.
Sia - "Chandelier"
Maddie Ziegler, the 11-year-old from Lifetime's "Dance Moms," busts some serious moves dressed as a pint-size version of the Australian songstress.
Nas - "I Can"
This is still one of the most inspiring rap songs for kids. So of course you gotta have kids in the video.
Pharrell - "Happy"
Watch some very cute, very happy kids dance to Pharrell's hit single.
Eminem - "Just Lose It"
Alyson Stoner once again steals the spotlight in Eminem's Michael Jackson parody.
Danny Brown - "Grown Up"
Dante Hoagland portrays a young Danny, sporting a gap tooth and loud, Danny-esque clothing.
Britney Spears - "Ooh La La"
Britney's sons Sean and Jayden both make appearances in their mom's music video.
Jessie Ware - "Sweet Talk"
Jessie Ware and producer Julio Bashmore are re-imagined as two lovable little kids. Like Danny's "Grown Up," the styling is superb.
Naughty Boy - "La La La"
The music video is based on a Bolivian legend in which a deaf boy flees an abusive home and travels the streets with his stray dog. Franco Miranda, the music video's star, was handpicked by the director because of his amazing energy and sweet, innocent charm.
Kanye West - "Cold"
Although this is a fan-made video, we had to give it an honorable mention because it's incredible. Caleb Harper is mini-Yeezus in the flesh.
