Video of the Moment #262: Vampire Weekend

Those preppy New York hipsters Vampire Weekend are exceptionally good at coming up with original and very funny promo videos. So I don’t really know where to go with this one for ‘Holiday’ really except tell you to watch it. I saw this for the first time after returning from Philadelphia (aka the former capital of the United States, oh, over 200 years ago) and after being among the tourists watching people in colonial garb, I could not help but giggle uncontrollably over the powdered wigs in this video, especially Ezra Koenig’s while he is wearing incongruous sunglasses. We cannot be held responsible for any soiling of clothes, tabletops, or computer monitors.

But wow, those colonials really know how to throw a party in the Canyon. And have a good time. Should the promo not be enough for you, catch their appearance on Jools Holland (playing ‘Holiday’, naturally) below it.
