What’s more, the face of the project, renegade commando cartoon character Major Lazer, has just received a life of his very own as FX Networks debuted the Major Lazer cartoon this April 16 as part of Animation Domination programming on FXX (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, The Simpsons, etc).

With guest appearances from Aziz Ansari, Andy Samberg, Tiësto, RiFF RAFF, Charli XCX, Ezra Koenig, Trinidad James and more, Major Lazer confirms that this will be one of the silliest and best sound-tracked years yet.
