New Vampire Weekend Video – “Oxford Comma”

Ezra and Chris T. of Les Vampires Lacoste visited prime time cable program Hangin’ With MTV yesterday. They chatted with VJ John Sencio and premiered a new short film. (Earlier, Lil Wayne had performed “A Milli” in Tron, so tough act to follow.) There was a pre-taped interview with a former student of Mr. Koenig’s from David Ruggles Junior High: “First thing we saw was his boat shoes. He’s known for that. … He would practice [guitar] in the class. Everybody would just laugh at him.” Whatever, kid. I bet you learned a lot about commas.

Ezra and Chris T. were invited to share twenty seconds of a video they liked (Chromeo’s “Needy Girl”). Perhaps that inspired all the white attire worn in “Oxford Comma”? VW filmed it on a farm in Ancramdale, NY in one long tracking shot. This was the 17th take…

MTV.com is collecting viewer responses to the video. This guy wasn’t impressed. Next week: T.I. and No Age! Tune in: youtube.com.
