MIA

I give this music video and song an emphatic Meh:

0:03 – Tell me more about that Short Barrel Shotgun (SBS) 3d printed barrel.

There’s just too much to make fun of in this video, so I’m not going to even bother.  Sadly I bet a good portion of the views the video has received are from people who actually think you can 3D print a functioning AK-47 and all the other guns shown in the video.

M.I.A. has had some good songs, don’t get me wrong but in my opinion she definitely tries too hard to be controversial.  This video is a perfect example.

Thoughts?

Very controversial new video put out by the UK rapper M.I.A.:

The 9 minute video features American police involved in some sort of redhead genocide, likely symbolic for something else.

I know what you’re thinking:

OH NOES GINGERCIDE! Where’s Carrot Top when you need him? Get Christina Hendricks and Lindsay Lohan to safety at once!!!

On another note… the flag patches are backwards on all the police uniforms, which is probably intentional.

The song doesn’t really appeal to me, but the video is pretty well done.

NOTE: I embedded both the YouTube and Vimeo versions of the video because the YouTube one is/was banned in lots of countries when it came out a couple days ago.
