Vampire Weekend Are Not Going Away Anytime Soon

Vampire Weekend mania is not over yet, people! The band continues to stoke the flame with a video for “Oxford Comma,” directed by Richard Ayoade of The Mighty Boosh. Precocious adolescents and the proudly collegiate will delight to see Ezra Koenig wander past cinematic references and chapter titles while wearing an all-white suit. The mix of surreality and upper-class affectation makes the video seem like a tribute to both Wes Anderson and late Luis Bunuel. If they don’t lose their sprightliness on album two, maybe they’ll eventually get their own video comp released by The Criterion Collection. [MTV]
