Megaforce's first video since Is Tropical's The Greeks is quite a big one...

Leo, Raphael, Clement and Charles (aka Megaforce) got the nod to direct Madonna's video for Give Me All Your Luvin' - the first, hyper-catchy song from new album MDNA - with a dark cartoon of a treatment which has Madonna being protected at all costs. For her part, Mdna is apparently a big fan of their Kid Cudi video.

It was shot in New York at the beginning of December, and after a lengthy edit by Madonna's favourite editor Danny Tull, post production took place at Box in New York and Mathematic in Paris, who did sterling work creating backgrounds in several scenes - including most of the opening 'suburbia' scene.

Maybe less dark than Megaforce hoped, but still a blockbuster, and you can't fault Madge for giving budding European directing talent a helping hand. She's been doing it for years. And of course it ties in with her Superbowl show...
