M.I.A.: Bad Girls

by Alice May


M.I.A.: “Bad Girls” - 4 mins 11s

Psy was this year's internet phenomenon, but Bad Girls is unrivalled as 2012's most outstanding video. It focuses on the Saudi culture of rich young boys dicing with death in the desert but features girls performing some of the stunts instead. Shot in solidarity with the 'women to drive' movement, it's stunning and powerful.
