M.I.A. – Born Free (Ginger Rebellion?)
This is an example to all bands and artists that release fucking shite music videos of them trying to look cool and shit, playing live in a warehouse. Seriously you are making a music video, it can be pretty much anything you want, yet bands continuously make the most boring bollocks music videos and miss out on opportunities to have some fun!
You can just have an epic party and record it, tits, booze and music will always be a winning combination. The Guns took full advantage of this in their video for ‘Its On Like Donkey Kong’
You can be arty as fuck and just make a random slow motion horror scene for no particular reason other than it looks awesome. A bit like this video from Health for the song ‘We Are Water’
Or you can just go full-out and make a mini film that’s ten minutes long like this video for the new M.I.A. single ‘Born Free’. It is actually amazingly graphic and brutal and turns ginger people into war rebels. More importantly though it is something people will want to watch and it will go viral and isn’t that the whole point of music videos in the first place?Vodpod videos no longer available.
So basically what I’m saying is I never want to see a boring, pointless piece of shit music video ever again. Go mental and you might even get fame because of it! (Think about how OK Go got massive…)
The M.I.A. video keeps getting taken down from various places so if you cant see it above try this YouTube link
