Shift + Command + 4: M.I.A. – Bad Girls

February 15, 2012

The new M.I.A. video for ‘Bad Girls’ is badass. Out for just over a week now, it’s had more than 2.5 million views already so this post is not an attempt to show you something ‘new’. But it is an official warning to all musicians who are thinking of making a video in 2012: I will be comparing it to this one.

In fact, since seeing this I’ve watched a new Feist video, the new Madonna video, a new Little Dragon video and I can safely say they’re not as good as ‘Bad Girls’. So if you’re video doesn’t have anything to rival jaw-dropping shots of MIA filing her nails on top of a car defying gravity [I never use the word swag but if I must…] or insane sandal skating, dust-burning desert drifting, a see-through neon car, a beautiful Arabian horse or a two-finger salute to the Saudi Arabia driving ban on women – then forget it.
