1. Here’s a 30-second preview of Major Lazer’s next video, “Scare Me,” featuring Peaches and dancehall star Timberlee.
2. In the teaser, we see Terry Crews (of Old Spice and Everybody Loves Chris fame) playing Major Lazer’s red beret-wearing mascot.
3. The credits at the end of the teaser also reveal that comedian Nick Kroll, Workaholics’ Blake Anderson, and actress Lauren London of BET’s The Game also star in the video.
4. It’s certainly an interesting cast of characters. But if their last video — “Bubble Butt,” directed by Eric Wareheim — is any indication, it’s sure to be a riot.
