Editor's Pick

Romain Gavras directs another video for Sri Lankan-British artist M.I.A. This time, the theme is a Middle Eastern drag race, presumably set there because of the Arabic music beat behind the song, "Bad Girls." The video was shot in Morocco, at the same place where The Mummy and Lawrence of Arabia were also filmed. This video features some pretty insane racing stunts, while M.I.A. sings about living fast and dying young.

Gavras last worked with M.I.A. for her controversial video, 'Born Free' a 9-minute short film that depicted military violence and brutality.
