As promised from the track debut earlier this week, out now is the enthralling video to go with M.I.A.’s “Bad Girls,” and some proper shenanigans are taking place.

M.IA. is joined by some Arab brethren as she indulges in bonfires, a crazy flip on “ghostriding the whip,” janky cars doing donuts, all topped off by being chauffeured in a neon see-through vehicle. Yep, you’re mad.
