A short film featuring the song, which doubles as its music video was directed by French director Romain Gavras. The film was released on M.I.A.'s website on April 26, 2010, three days after the release of the song.

The film depicts an armed force wearing United States flags on their shoulders, running through a building in an urban zone and beating a couple having sex, passing by a man smoking drugs, and a red-haired young man being violently forced into a detainee transport vehicle along with other red-haired men that have been rounded up, and has been described widely as a metaphoric political statement. The men are shown being driven out to the desert, treated brutally, and forced to run across a live minefield. During the course of events a child is shown shot through the head and another person is graphically shown being blown to pieces after stepping on a live mine. During the video a mural is seen with armed red haired men and the slogan "Our day will come," which is the historic slogan of the Irish Republican Army, Tiocfaidh ar la. Also depicted are keffiya-wearing red-haired children who throw rocks and glass bottles at the armored vehicles transporting the detainees, an apparent reference to the Palestinian resistance.
