Video of the Moment #225: Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend, selling out venues in the UK and America, have just released a new video, directed by the Malloy Brothers, for another song off their sophomore album, ‘Contra’. Here is the promo for ‘Giving Up the Gun’, which features the band’s mate Jenny (who you may recognise as the goth in the ‘Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa’ video), actor Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers, and RZA and Lil Jon of Wu-Tang Clan. And as we’ve come to expect from Vampire Weekend, it’s a highly entertaining video, inspired by frontman Ezra Koenig’s idea of having their friend Jenny play tennis against a samurai. Watch and enjoy.
