As we’ve mentioned, Major Lazer is “Paper Planes” producers Switch and Diplo’s collaborative and conceptual dancehall project. As the concept goes, he’s “a Jamaican commando who lost his arm in the secret Zombie War of 1984,” etc. (e.g., he gets around on a rocket-powered silver-surfer board). Clearly someone of Major Lazer’s stature (and super-powered prosthetic limbs) also has a bunch of friends, which is why Mr. Lexx and Santigold contribute to “Hold The Line.” But this animated video is all about the Major and those annoying vampire zombies.

If you’re too old for cartoons:

Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do is out 6/16 on Downtown.

  1. Only if those Major Lazer action figures were around when I was younger. There would have been some epic battles between Major Lazor and Rambo.

    You have no idea how disappointed I am that this is not a Toto cover, especially with that video.

  3. Santigold’s part is a little too much like Wayne’s ‘a milli’. But that art is great. Very nostalgia ridden.
