Vampire Weekend And Dr. Seuss Kick It In Ad For ‘The Lorax’

    This aired during the Super Bowl, so it technically counts as a part of a “indie band in commercials” trend piece, but really it belongs on the “indie band in movie trailer spectrum.” Apparently there is a new Dr. Seuss movie coming soon (since all of the last ones were so great. Shout out to Mike Myers.), and it’s an animated adaptation of The Lorax. The music behind the animated hijinks of a creature interested in conservation? Vampire Weekend’s “Campus,” which is a bit of an odd choice. I mean, afro-pop-influenced indie and animated massacres of beloved children’s books? OK?
