    Below, you can watch M.I.A.'s brand new, "Technicolor" video for her single, "XXXO." The video focuses on the controversial rapper's coral-painted mouth and black eyeliner-smeared eyes. She wears a long, curly wig and is dressed in gold lame in some scenes. It's very bright and bold, hue-wise, and it pays a bit of a tribute to the plugged in worlds of Twitter and other social networking sites. There are also big cats, swans and unicorns toddling about in "XXXO."

    It's also a bit of a mellow-sounding song, which is not what M.I.A. is known for.

    Did you watch the video? What did you think? Did you feel like you were on acid?
