Well, summer’s finally officially here (though I’ve been home on summer break for over a month, but that’s a college thing). And there’s nothing like Vampire Weekend to get one in the summer spirit, so I thought I’d celebrate the season with the band’s latest video, the incredibly summer-tastic “Holiday”. It’s a feel-good, silly video featuring the band cruising in a convertible, crashing pool parties, frolicking on the beach, spraying grafitti, eating some scrumtious-looking dessert, getting into brawls with surfer dudes, and involving themselves in various other shenanigans. Oh, yeah, did I mention they’re doing all this while inexplicably dressed like extras from Amadeus? Hey, don’t question it, just enjoy it. Because I’m warning you, I plan to spend the rest of the week on this blog ranting. More on that later, though.
