Diplo & Switch’s “Major Lazer” An Early Woodies Fave?
Transactional media in the middle of the new Diplo & Switch music video, “Major Lazer”? Check out how the animation makes way for live action, in which young boys play with action figures you can (not really) “order now!” My guess is they compete for a Woodies nomination this year.

The song is dope too, but the video is so so good and feels perfectly sat. morning in 1987. I'm in! Are we making a new show? I'm in.

Yo, Lorraine. A Woodie is an award from MTV's college network, mtvU. College kids nationwide pick their favorite artists (mostly indie bands), and then mtvU throws a concert to announce and celebrate the winners. Here's more on the Woodie Awards: http://www.woodies.mtvu.com
