We’ve seen a few clever videos to promote the annual countdown, but this one may well take the cake. Breakfast hosts turned detectives Matt and Alex are tasked by their captain Alison Wonderland to investigate a string of artist kidnappings and solve the mystery of who is behind the conspiracy.

Among several standout moments we get to see Courtney Barnett drag race The Rubens, Peking Duk escape an exploding building, Daniel Johns face off in a high stakes poker game against Ice Cube and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker at the mercy of a laser a la Goldfinger.

Voting is now open, so be sure to head over to the triple J website. If you’re having trouble deciding on which songs to include in your top 10, have a geez at the Happy 100 for some inspiration.
