Jimmy Jimmy revisited

Last week, I posted a preview clip of M.I.A.'s new single, Jimmy Jimmy, and likened it to a Bollywood remake of camp disco classic (I Lost My Heart To A) Starship Trooper.

It turns out the song is actually a western remake of a Bollywood song called Jimmy Aja (Disco Dancer). A quick scan through Youtube turns up a clip from the original film, in which a woman wearing red sweatpants dances provocatively in front of a zombie during an Indian version of The Generation Game. No, really.

While we're at it, here's the full version of the M.I.A. video. Nice arm work.
