Vampire Weekend Stages Indie Rock’s Last Supper In ‘Diane Young’ Video

After the lyric video for “Diane Young” got them in hot water with Saab enthusiasts for burning several vehicles (as if there really are Saab enthusiasts), Vampire Weekend have released a new and energetic clip chock full of cameos from the indie music world.

Sitting around Vampire Weekend’s candle-lit Last Supper table are: Santigold, Sky Ferreira, the Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser, members of Chromeo, Dirty Projector’s Dave Longstreth and a video-game-playing masked man who sits between the table’s feuding members.

In a “Harlem Shake”-style, tempo-induced change of scenery, the table of party goers morph from humble dinner attendants to food-fighting, blender-loving anarchists; one of whom smokes copious amounts of pot through a saxophone. It all makes for an entertaining romp.

The New York-based foursome will finish off the summer hitting a myriad of festivals with several dates in the U.S. including Firefly, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.

Vampire Weekend’s latest, Modern Vampires Of The City, is available now.
