ONTD Original: Music Video Tropes Pt. 2 - Shipping Containers and/or Heavy Machinery & Tools

There is a sister post with the same theme but with K-Pop videos over on Omona. Click here.

Missed Part 1 all about desert locations? Click here.

Below I've compiled a short list of music videos featuring pop stars that, for some reason or another, love spending time dancing near shipping containers or hanging around heavy machinery:

Rosalía - A Palé

Rosalía running amok on top of and through some shipping containers.

Fifth Harmony - Work from Home ft. Ty Dolla $ign

The Fifth Harmony girls pretending they have any business being at a construction site. Quick, someone call OSHA! for the health and safety of my ears!

Jennifer Lopez - Goin' In featuring Flo Rida

Remember this song? Lol me either.

Tinashe - All Hands on Deck

Heavy machinery AND shipping containers AND container choreography!?!? The Queen of Music knows what she's doing!

Robert Randolph and the Family Band - Ain't Nothing Wrong With That

You don't think you know it, but you do. The power of shipping containers!

Benny Benassi - Satisfaction

Jackhammers are probably their own trope at this point, Jesus.

Ciara - Work ft. Missy Elliott

Hot girls in heels using power tools? Check. Half-cut white tank tops and sexy jeans with a tool belt? Check. Heavy machinery? Check. Look out everyone, I think we've got a pop music video on our hands here!

Bon Jovi & Jennifer Nettles - Who Says You Can't Go Home

Another OSHA violation for the sake of a music video. Celebrities are shameless!

Drake - Hold On, We’re Going Home featuring Majid Jordan

The one where the video doesn't match the song in the least.

Justin Bieber - Holy featuring Chance The Rapper

Bieber pretending he does manual labour.

Any egregious omissions, ONTD? I'm positive I'm missing a ton here.
