Sia Is One Playful Broad In "Clap Your Hands"

If I had lots of cash from having my songs licensed for countless endorsement deals and TV shows—not to mention from writing songs for Christina Aguilera's upcoming album—I'd make happy-go-lucky videos like the one for "Clap Your Hands," too. And that's one of the things that's so appealing about Sia—the consistent childlike wonder and innocent nature that comes across in her music videos.

Well, that and the fact that she's grinding a flag like a stripper pole in this clip:



All in all, a really fun video by Kris Moyes, the same director who did Sia's "Buttons."

    thanks for the love darling, but this video was actually directed by KRIS MOYES who did the BUTTONS video.

    OMG! Amended -- thank you, David. I was going off this, from when I interviewed her in Feb (did the director change last minute, then?):

    Q: Tell us about the video you’re doing with Claire Carre now.
    A: With this new song—it’s called “Clap Your Hands”— I was like, “I want to cut some feathers out of self help books and then I want to attach them to a large set of pneumatic wings. And that the end I want to do some Bollywood dancing.” And she expanded on that. There were a bunch of people that pitched for it, but, again, hers was the most interesting expansion.
