“Giving Up The Gun” (Video)

     

    Vampire Weekend soundtrack the trippiest tennis match of all time in the video for their “Giving Up the Gun,” which sees a woman playing tennis against a giant woman, twins, a samurai, a drinking Jake Gyllenhaal and Joe Jonas while RZA acts as line judge. It’s a pretty crazy clip, that only gets dreamier when RZA starts mouthing the lyrics and the woman starts playing three versions of herself. Then Lil Jon shows up as her coach, and this thing basically implodes on its own goofiness. It’s memorable at least, and its celebrity cameos bring to mind the kind of jokey videos from the ’80s.
