Watch: Major Lazer 'Sweat'

And see the video some are claiming they ripped off.

Holy black light warehouse party, Batman! The dancing in Major Lazer's new video really makes us wish we kept up those dancing classes we quit when we were nine. Featuring Dutch dude Laidback Luke and UK rapper Ms. Dynamite (as in "I'm just Ms. Dy-na-mi-tee"), the track comes off Major Lazer's Free The Universe album and was directed by Ryan Staake. Set in a mysterious warehouse, the not-very-dressed dancers in the video (from The Underground Street Chronicles crew) get splattered in Dayglo paint while gyrating. 

 
Soon enough, the sweat/paint and fast-moving bodies become a blur of electronic dancehall cray cray. Just when you think things can't get more intense, they do. We're kind of tired just from watching. See what we mean:
 

UPDATE: There's a group called Children who uploaded the video for their track '#Sweat' to YouTube earlier this year. The similarities are many. Ryan Staake has addressed the accusation so plagiarism on Twitter, saying "I totally see how you could assume that, right down to the title, but I assure you, I'd never seen this before." The director also states that he's "reaching out to Sarrah from the Children vide to attempt to clear this up." See the Children video below and make up your own mind.

UPDATE: Director of the Major Lazer video, Ryan Staake has released an online statement, addressing accusations of plagiarism and saying "This is unequivocally false. I've tried to address the matter with my accusers directly, but that has yielded little positive outcome. So I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly set this matter straight, letting everyone know the truth." He goes on to give evidence in the form of dated emails, treatments and matching statements from management. He makes a compelling case! Read it here
