I am a ginger.
There, I said it.
And yes, I do look different from all the other white people out there with my auburn-colored hair and recessive genes.
When I walk down the street I do get looks, with eyeballs staring and young faces turned upwards in amazement.
And yes, I have seen M.I.A.’s latest music video/ginger-pocalypse, “Born Free,” in all its nine-minute, banned-from-YouTube glory.
But no, I didn’t like it.
And no, it’s not for the reason you’re thinking.
This moment is the ginger equivalent to The Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up”
(music video embedded below at source),
a video from 1997 shot from the perspective of what we assume could only be a violent, drug-induced male jackass,
who turns out to be …
If only M.I.A.‘s video would have ended at this point.
