A key component of Major Lazer's insanely entertaining live shows is a violent humping-based dance move called "daggering," which the futuristic dancehall duo of DJ/producers Diplo and Switch posted a how-to about last year. The pair explore a different kind of dangerous dance — a sword dance — in the brand new video for Major Lazer's track with Dutch DJ duo the Partysquad, "Original Don." Watch below, via Pitchfork.

Diplo himself makes an appearance in the clip, sitting on a couch and politely reading a book (there's no sign of Switch). Meanwhile, a couple of younger people in T-shirts and jeans dance around with medieval-style weaponry, joined by a dog, a puppy, and an elderly woman in gigantic shades that sadly don't appear to be BluBlockers. "Original Don" is out now as a a digital EP with Don Draper-inspired artwork —be still, Grandma's heart.
