Major Lazer Video for "Hold the Line" Does in Fact Have Lasers In It

We had genuinely hoped that the video to Major Lazer's air-raid siren of a song, "Hold the Line," would merely be a clip of Diplo or Switch virtuosically playing the track on some sort of amazingly enhanced version of the Mad Decent iPhone app. Which we could then also download--the app, it turns out, is a great party trick, and demonstrates conclusively that we are not the only ones obsessed with the dancehall airhorn. Anyway, this is not at all what happened. Instead it's all Hanna-Barbera-type animation and live action sequences of plastic figures being ponderously manipulated by visible human hands. Oh, right--and tremendous amounts of lasers. Er, lazers. [via GvB]
