James Van Der Beek becomes Diplo in Mad Decent Block Party promo

Posted on

Diplo’s touring one-day festival, the Mad Decent Block Party, kicks off at the end of July and the DJ-producer-label boss has tapped Dawson’s Creek alum James Van Der Beek to help raise awareness — sort of. Van Der Beek stars in the latest promo clip, as Diplo himself.

Shot docu-style, the video parodies a day in life of the dance music powerhouse — excessive air horn use, social media ghost writers, on-staff twerkers, and more air horns, included. 

The 2016 Mad Decent Block party bows July 30 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. A full list of dates is below.
