Vampire Weekend Video for “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” Causes Mass Confusion

The much-talked about John Hughes-inspired video for Vampire Weekend‘s song “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” has been revealed on their MySpace page. There’s also a nod to “Thriller” in the second act of the video, with the band turning into a goth-y, Cure-loving looking band. (Probably a not so subtle mocking of VW’s perpetual preppiness as played up in the press.)

The resounding verdict? A big ol’ “HUH?”

Watch for yourself:
Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa

I liked the last video where they ripped off/made fun of Wes Anderson better, but still… can’t someone pitch more original ideas to these guys? This novelty video shiz is getting old real fast.

  1. I guess this trendy-band-of-the moment is running it’s 15 minute course. Who will be the next band we’re all supposed to see as the second coming? Can’t we just get a new White Stripes record instead?
