Major Lazer

At this point, after “Scare Me,” “Bubble Butt,” and so many more, we can count on Major Lazer to put together a very entertaining music video. In the clip for the Apocalypse Soon EP’s Sean Paul collab “Come On To Me,” director Ruben Fleischer (probably best known for M.I.A.’s “Galang” video) incorporates kabuki actors and taiko drums. It’s fun to watch and compared to Avril Lavigne’s recent choices it’s pretty tame on the whole Japanese-cultural-appropriation scale. Check it out below.

Apocalypse Soon is out now on Secretly Canadian.

  1. Avril got slammed by critics for Hello Kitty, but Major Lazer’s until discography is one long cultural appropriation-fest. Miles, don’t you think if this exact same video was an Avril joint, people would be losing their shit?
