Music Video Info:

The official music video was released on August 11, 2010 on her official VEVO account. The music video was to be directed by Hype Williams, but M.I.A. eventually directed the video. The quirky, playful visuals, evolved from animated web graphics based on M.I.A.’s own designs for the album cover and booklet.[9][10] The video features shots filmed on M.I.A.'s flipcam.[11] The video for "XXXO" references several online social networking sites and resembles online gifs and animations that are popular on Arabic language Internet forums, blogs, and social/dating websites. It features M.I.A. in a number of headshots amongst glittery floral graphics, resembling those made on Blingee.com. At one point in the clip, four white unicorns gallop across the screen. Golden Arabic-style calligraphy spells out her name and, at another point, the phrase "click here to download," written in a similar font, scrolls diagonally across the screen. The YouTube screenshots featured on the cover of the /\/\/\Y/\ album also appear in the video, in various video feedback sequences. The video ends with the MySpace refrain "Thank you for adding me."

After a week of upload, the video had over 2 million views on her VEVO account on YouTube. It reached 8 on Billboard magazine's AOL Video chart of the most streamed video clips on AOL music.[12] On August 18, 2010, the video was aired on Adult Swim.
