About a month ago, Kottke posted this video he found through Than Tibbetts which began making the rounds because of just how silly and off-kilter it was. It featured few random looking people – one jian sword dancing, one busting out some moves with a pocket knife, the other being a grandma with her dog, chilling out and watching what was going on.
When I saw this it seemed too well put together, and as it turns out my instinct was right. This morning Major Lazer released a video with this motley crew of weirdos for their newest track, Original Don, featuring Party Squad. It’s a pretty rad song, and definitely fits in with the dancing they’re doing. It’s also funny to see Diplo chilling in their world. Glad to see people like Major Lazer weirding it up more and creating a “viral video” that grabbed a lot of attention, or so I’m assuming.
Down below you can also see a behind-the-scenes-ish video of Diplo chilling with the grandma, as well as the original videos that were posted.
