The commandos finally find who they're looking for, a redheaded boy, and take him prisoner, putting him on a jail bus.

Along with a very direct message about M.I.A.'s thoughts on current events, the video also has some startling imagery that we don't suggest watching while eating.
YouTube allegedly pulled the video from airing in the US, causing M.I.A. to rail against her label, Interscope/Universal Music Group, in a tweet that read, "F--- UMG who won't show it on YouTube."
