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.
