CSS Get Bloody in ‘Alala’ Video

Since being sexy can be so tiring, Brazilian electro-pop sextet Cansei de Ser Sexy (CSS) decided to get bloody in their video for “Alala” instead. In the clip, an ’80s prom party turns into a melee. Director Cat Solen used time-lapse footage in reverse, causing the band members and fellow brawlers to go from beaten to beautiful. “Alala backwards is still Alala; it’s a palindrome,” Solen explained to VideoStatic.com. “So the backwards stuff is also meant to be a funny reference to the title.”
