Amazing promo vid for this year’s Hard Summer Music Festival in LA, which takes place on Saturday, August 6. Tickets usually sell out fast, get them here. The festival always has some surprises up its sleeve, whether it’s DJ AM (RIP) performing in a Daft Punk costume in 2008 or Diplo having Lil Jon as a suprise hype man on stage in 2009. You don’t want to miss this.

This music video is out of control. It’s basically a modern-day sequel to the lo-fi Das Racist video game I posted a few weeks back. Some wtf moments you’ll discover if you play close attention:

  • In the background of the Lil Jon vs. Diplo fight scene: Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Tiger Woods, John McCain and Sarah Palin wearing oversized middle finger gloves
  • Lil Jon throwing a hamburger and a chicken at Diplo
  • A bear and a baby dancing in the background of the club scene
  • Silver horses running next to race cars
  • Taiwanese subtitles that, at one point, refer to Erol Alkan (I wish somebody would translate them)

The video was put together by the Taiwanese production house NMA aka the people behind those viral computer animated tabloid news videos. I’m not too fond of the song itself, which is the first single off Diplo’s dubstep compilation

By the way, the compilation looks rather dated and uninspired in my book (track list below). But if you’re not familiar with the genre you might still find it an interesting release.
