M.I.A. – Born Free vid

M.I.A, Born Free from ROMAIN-GAVRAS on Vimeo.

After watching this video I thought about the amount of excitement people had over Gaga’s “Telephone” video. If you are going to spend 9 minutes watching a video it better have something to say and this video delivers on all fronts. We get an extended (and great) version of the original song and a beautifully shot work of art. In a world where videos like this one exist I just don’t want to waste my time watching Gaga do a dance number. Great song, great video, great message.

I always knew I should be afraid of gingers.
