Major Lazer - "Zumbie"

so this is pretty cool - it's the video for "Zumbie" by Major Lazer, starring Andy Milonakis.

Major Lazer is a project by DJs Diplo and Switch, and he's a cartoon character with a funny fictional backstory - he's a Jamaican commando who lost an arm in a secret zombie war in 1984. He was rescued by the U.S. military, who replaced his arm with a laser, and now he flies around on a rocket-powered skateboard fighting monsters and partying a lot. He owns a dance club in Trinidad and makes dancehall and ragga-influenced electronic music sung in Jamaican patois, with help from friends Diplo and Switch. And I interviewed him for DCist!

(Note there are some bad words in the song)
