How about this one:
Indeed, I hadn't heard it in a long time but it's a good one from the band Scouting for Girls (see what they did there?!). There are no doubt others out there that I will post as it comes to me.
Here's another one I've remembered from a few years back - The Feeling with 'Love It When You Call'. It features former JBIFC President Graham Rye in the role of a gang boss, has Bondian casino references and an Octopussy film reference to boot!
I seem to recall a video that had guns and girls in it, but I can't remember what it was.

Great list indeed. How could I have forgotten about Robbie Williams' Millennium?!
It is not a Bond spoof, it is a Norwegian boys band spoof.
Here is for instance a French hit of 1986 which mix Bond along with other strong iconology at that time. You can see a direct tribute to Dr No titles at 2:45 for instance, the dots and the dancers.
Warning, this hit French music video from the 80's may be considered by some "not safe for work" nowadays !
Or can we talk about music clips where the link is more distant. For instance this clip by Justice could be judged as reminiscent of Kleinman's approach, with the scrolling on inanimate objects etc..
Warning : some may judge it NSFW either.
Also, I see spoof titles above, then there's this one from a French movie, which did, well, more viewers than any Bond ever did, unfair :) The rest of the movie has zero relationship with Bond though.
I'd say :
1) is the film title above
2) is the Justice video above (IMO - the girls help a lot for the Kleinman touch though)
and if it had been more successful, 3) could have been the Alizee video : the CR leaves effect is meaningful for the song.
Here's another one, where Bond titles iconology is mixed with other strong iconology (Pulp Fiction for instance)
