The health and fitness world gets a bad rap when it comes to having fun. Just because we Healthy Living editors opt for brown rice over white, strive to get eight hours of sleep a night and skip happy hour for the gym doesn't mean we don't know how to hang!

Luckily, pop culture gives us more than a few opportunities to laugh at ourselves and all the healthy-living stereotypes we admittedly embody through and through. Some of our favorites are these hilarious and outrageous fitness scenes in popular music videos.

Oh, and did we mention there are serious health benefits of laughing?! (Couldn't resist!)

  • OK Go, 'Here It Goes Again'

    Interval workouts, sure. But <em>dance</em> workouts on the treadmill? Please, don't try this one at home! <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTAAsCNK7RA" target="_hplink">Watch the full video here.</a>

  • Madonna, 'Hung Up'

    Madge's arms usually get all the attention, but, hello, thighs! There aren't many people who would look this good in this tiny leotard -- and did we mention she's in her late 40s in this video!

  • Right Said Fred, 'I'm Too Sexy'

    We're not convinced that mesh shirts were ever really considered "sexy," or that this song has ever been taken seriously. But check out that <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/08/fix-your-form-pushup_n_1500458.html" target="_hplink">pushup form</a> right after the two-minute mark!

  • Olivia Newton John, 'Physical'

    We can totally relate to this fantasy -- who hasn't imagined a few minutes at the gym resulting in a total hot-body transformation? <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/01/health-miracles-tweets_n_1310536.html" target="_hplink">#HealthMiracle</a>! <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWz9VN40nCA" target="_hplink">Watch the full video here.</a>

  • Kanye West, 'The New Workout Plan'

    Not that Kanye is ever anything <em>but</em> outrageous, this gem not only spoofs a whole bunch of the gym personalities we've actually seen, it also pokes fun at all those trendy fitness DVDs and gadgets (hello, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/17/skecher-shape-ups_n_1524714.html" target="_hplink">Skecher Shape Ups</a>) that don't deliver on their outlandish, lose-weight-fast promises. <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua61XY84gGg" target="_hplink">Watch the full video here.</a>

  • LMFAO, 'Sexy And I Know It'

    Okay, so, Redfoo isn't about to win any bodybuilding competitions. But hey, he works out and he's proud of that scrawny body! We could probably all use a little more of his attitude, come to think of it. Maybe just leave the Speedo at home... <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyx6JDQCslE&has_verified=1" target="_hplink">Watch the full video here.</a>

  • Eric Prydz, 'Call On Me'

    There are a whole lot of moves demonstrated here -- and not a single one that we've ever seen in a real aerobics class... <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-RJE6e5kSY&has_verified=1" target="_hplink">Watch the full video here.</a>

  • David Banner, 'Play'

    We're all for an encouraging workout buddy, but there's something slightly terrifying about David Banner's whispering. Do what he says and nobody gets hurt. <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qld7WvHa5kc" target="_hplink">Watch the full video here.</a>
