Watch the M.I.A.-Directed Video for M.I.A.’s ‘Double Bubble Trouble’

The video for M.I.A.'s latest song, "Double Bubble Trouble," involves a frantic, flashing collection of teens and toys, and it is directed by M.I.A. herself. This marks the first time the musician has shot one of her own songs, coming 14 years after her last video-directing gig, for Elastica’s "Mad Dog God Damn." The new video arrives after she lobbed some comments about its delay toward her record label on Twitter: "My label has my video, they havnt uploaded for 4 days > they wont let me upload > whats is the point? smh." [sic] But is it worth the wait? You be the judge.
