Video of the Moment #326: M.I.A.

By on Tuesday, 17th August 2010 at 6:00 pm

Last month, British-Tamil musicial M.I.A. released her third studio album ‘Maya,’ and last week she released the video for it’s first official single, ‘XXXO.’ (Several tracks from the album were made available online before the album’s release.) The video is a lot of fun, and is heavily influenced by internet culture. In addition to having her name and other phrases written out in Arabic-like script, it looks like the video version of the glittery ridiculousness you can make on The video is shaping up to be huge, with over 1.8million views within three days of being uploaded, so give it a look and let us know what you think in the comments!
