LOS ANGELES, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Sia released a video featuring Maddie Ziegler for her new single "The Greatest" -- and there are rumors the video is based on the events at Pulse nightclub.
The video premiered on Vevo Tuesday and features Ziegler, with rainbows painted on her cheeks, leading a group of children who are dancing through the halls of an abandoned building.
The song features Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar who is noticeably absent from the video.
A fan theory suggests the video is inspired by the June shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando which took the lives of 49 people and injured 53 more.
"I really think the video is inspired by the Orlando Pulse shooting. There's 49 dancers. At the beginning, Maddie wipes the rainbow tears down her eyes. Then she looks tormented and starts to cry. She wakes up the dead bodies (the victims) and reminds them "don't give up" and that they are "the greatest." At the end, they're all dancing together in the warehouse with the disco balls (Pulse) before falling down, like they're dead. The wall behind them looks like there's been bullets shot through them."
