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]
