Lately Sia's clips have focused on impressive athletic displays by precocious youngsters like Maddie Ziegler, who famously starred in the videos for "Chandelier," "Elastic Heart," and "Big Girls Cry." Sia's latest video involves an impressive youth martial arts display. The treatment is simple: one child filmed in a nondescript warehouse space.
