What’s up with the music videos today? The internet amateur style finally made it into a music video, thanks to Hype Williams & M.I.A. The video for XXXO is just pure bliss! It’s the music video of the year, hands down.
There’s just one bitter taste about it. I can’t watch the official video in Germany, M.I.A. even uses the official YouTube video on her homepage. Is 2010 still the year where licenses are local but music is global?

    You don’t usually encounter the words “brilliant” and “Hype Williams” in close proximity, but this is one of those exceptions.
