Seen and Heard: Vampire Weekend


I think we should call Vampire Weekend's new video (for their song "Giving Up the Gun" off album du jour Contra) 'surrealist prep'. What have we got here? Tennis. RZA as a Line Judge from out of the Matrix. One Jonas Brother. Jake Gyllenhaal. Lil Jon with French subtitles. Fireballs. What does it equal? Pretty good music video, actually. A little slow, but fun and not so predictable. Plus: breakaway pants! Who doesn't think a good tearing off of the breakaways isn't a great comedic asset? Anyone? No. Didn't think so.

  1. I'm sad. This makes me want to respect Joe Jonas a little bit. My mind=blown.
