The first Friday of June marks National Doughnut Day, folks. True story. Our co-workers over at City of Ate even got Homer Simpson to comment on it.

Anyway, since we love foodie holidays here at the Observer -- especially ones celebrating sweet, deep-fried, ring-shaped balls of dough -- we thought it appropriate to comprise a list of our favorite music videos that pay homage to the morning treat.

So, sit back and grab a sweet, sugary, glazed, frosted, sprinkle, fried, braided, jelly-filled, bacon-topped or whatever other kind of doughnut you like, and enjoy.

Katy Perry -- "California Gurls (feat. Snoop Dogg)
Watch as Katy Perry's backup dancers make "interesting" use of donuts.

Neil Cicierega -- "Toy Food"
Cicierega, a.k.a. Lemon Demon, sings a song about toy food, including plastic donuts.

Weird Al -- "Eat It"
Snacking on some chocolate dunkers before hitting the streets, no big deal.

Man Like Me -- "Donut"
The blokes from Man Like Me compare their girlfriends (presumably ex-girlfriends now) to doughnuts. Also, keep your eyes peeled for an over-sized pink doughnut rolling across the street.

Matt "Chainsaw" Chaney -- "Donuts, Go Nuts!"
Yes, this is an entire song and video dedicated to the heavenly deep-fried pastries.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
