Major Lazer – “Aerosol Can” (Feat. Pharrell) Video

By Sam Behrens / April 17, 2014

Pharrell is still having a moment. And while his mug (and his hat) seems to be everywhere these days, in Major Lazer’s new video for “Aerosol Can” we hear Pharrell, but instead of seeing his age-defying face, we get to watch graffiti and tattoo legend Mike Giant tag up a white room with Pharrell’s lyrics.

It’s almost a new take on the concept of a lyric video, as Giant scrawls stylized lines across a perfectly white wall, some of his illustrations begin to animate, squirming, wiggling, or spinning in place — the sheer liveliness of Diplo’s dancehall catalyzing energy from potential to kinetic. Check out the video below.
