what non-Moz song/video could Moz cameo in?

What non Morrissey related song would you like to see Morrissey in or would suit him to be in? (Kind of hard to put in words my idea.)

For instance, I remember seeing REM's "Everybody Hurts" recently, where people of all sorts are stuck in traffic on a freeway, and I could picture Morrissey doing a cameo, being in one of the cars which is stuck in traffic, and the camera just pans across him sitting there and he's reading Oscar Wilde while waiting for the traffic to move.


That led me to the thought of Morrissey being in the video of Moby/Gwen Stefani's "South Side". Not the video they have for it but a totally different concept of Morrissey in the role of the "Moz Father" sitting in the back of a car as in "The Youngest Was The Most Loved". As the car goes to the "east, "west", "north" and "south" sides of town, picking up his gang, whether in his car, or on cycles or Vespas, they drive around town and extort money from shopkeepers and the like; some of the gang falling by the wayside as the night progresses into day; seeing people sex it up in dark rainy alleyways. Morrissey just sitting in the car though, but his gang interacting with him through the window.


South Side lyrics
-----
see myself in the pouring home
see the light come over now
see myself in the pouring rain
i watch hope come over me

yeah, yeah
here we are now, going to the east side
i pick up my friends and we start to ride
ride all night, we ride all day
some may come and some may stay

here we are in the pouring home
i watch the light man fall the comb
i watch a light move across the screen
i watch the light come over me

yeah, yeah
here we are now going to the west side
weapons in hand as we go for a ride
some may come and some may stay
watching out for a sunny day
where there's love and darkness and my sidearm

hey, elan

here we are now going to the north side
i look at my friends as they start to ride
ride at night we ride all day
looking out for a sunny day

here we are now going to the south side
i pick up my friends and we hope we won't die
ride at night, ride through heaven and hell
come back and feel so well.

And breaking my own "rule", in "The Youngest Was The Most Loved" if Morrissey would have done a cameo as of one of the photographers; taking pictures of "himself" getting into the car.
