Vampire Weekend Video: Cameos Galore

Last week Director Emmett Malloy described the cameo-heavy treatment for Vampire Weekend’s “Giving Up The Gun” like it was the Wimbledon of awesome: “We had RZA presiding over the tennis match. Lil Jon came down to give some tennis tips. Jake Gyllenhaal drank himself out of the competition; Joe Jonas tried, but did not succeed. There was a lot of rigorous competition, pyrotechnics, and a little bit of milk to cap it all off.

And I can’t describe it any better than that. I mean, you know when something completely meets the lofty expectations in your head? We’ve all seen Avatar haven’t we. This is like the Avatar of film clips but instead of another dimension we get a surly Jake Gyllenhall and proof that the RZA can teleport. Anyone for tennis?
