The NFL player-turned-actor appears in the trio’s new video for “Scare Me,” off their new album released earlier this year, playing none other than the Major himself. In the video, he’s tasked with saving the world from an evil warlord who’s gotten his hands on a powerful “terror lazer.”
So it’s Major Lazer, using a major lazer (among other things) to fight off a man with another, more powerful major lazer. I wish there was a way to watch this battle live. And on acid.
A few other familiar faces made it into the video, including Workaholics’ Blake Andersen and The League’s Nick Kroll, who utters by far the most powerful line in the video: “Awaken the Major.”
This concept of the video is perfect for this particular adrenaline-pumping song, and gives a brilliant new perspective to the animated protagonist for whom the band is named. Such a fun video to watch.
