The music video for Vampire Weekend’s new track “Giving Up The Gun” is a star-studded affair, with the ever-gorgeous Jake Gyllenhaal, Wu-Tang Clan legend RZA, and teen heartthrob Joe Jonas all making cameos.
While the star power will no doubt attract interest, director Emmett Malloy has done his best to make this clip about more than mere celebrities. Lil Jon’s turn as tennis guru and Jake Gyllenhaal’s surly alcoholic stint are genuinely funny. It’s clear that egos were checked at the door, as no one takes themselves too seriously.
Malloy, who’s also been behind clips from The White Stripes and Wolfmother, has definitely outdone himself here. Anyone for tennis?
