Redhead Victim from M.I.A.'s 'Born Free' Gets Reprise in Sleigh Bells' 'Riot Rhythm'

Now Hamrick returns as a chess prodigy in Sleigh Bells' amusing "Riot Rhythm" video, which is not exactly an official clip but should be.
Video: Sleigh Bells, "Riot Rhythm"
In the Bo Mirosseni-directed video, Hamrick plays "the pupil," who trains his little heart out for a round of magical chess by playing a prehistoric computer game. Oh, he also whips his flaming red hair back and forth. Willow would be so proud, inspiring other preteens to give themselves permanent neck damage.
