Music video with the highest number of / best cameos?

Just saw Jamie Foxx's video for "Blame It on the Alcohol" and was laughing at the cameos. I won't ruin it for you, just watch.

<object width="448" height="374"><param name="movie" value="http://videos.onsmash.com/e/kem52hpFdqPYwVEv"></param><param name="allowFullscreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowNetworking" value="all"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://videos.onsmash.com/e/kem52hpFdqPYwVEv" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullscreen="true" allowNetworking="all" allowScriptAccess="always" width="448" height="374"></embed></object>

Then I thought... What video has the most cameos? Big Pun's "It's So Hard" had a lot of cameos:

Yeah, I found a whole other reason to laugh at the Jamie Foxx clip :O)

This Michael Jackson video is nothing but cameo's, all asking " Where's Michael?"

Clearly, the winner's Pulp's "Bad Cover Version":

I don't know how many, but there are a bunch of cameos in the Sam Kinison "Wild Thing" music video.

Not really cameos since they all sang the song too, but this is the first thing that came to mind...

Yep.. Had a bunch

Would "We are the World" be cheating?

Hank Williams, Jr.'s "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight"
Johnny Cash's "God's Gonna Cut You Down"
Garth Brooks's "We Shall Be Free"

Not sure the final count of any of these three, but there are quite a lot.
