Watch Vampire Weekend’s Last Supper with Brooklyn elite in video for “Diane Young”
Vampire Weekend takes history’s most iconic dinner — The Last Supper with Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior – and flips it over in the new video for “Diane Young”. Directed by Primo Khan, the debauched feast is a rogue’s gallery of Brooklyn elite, including Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth, Chromeo, Santigold, a bored Sky Ferreira, and The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser.
To quote Johnny Carson, it’s “wild, wacky stuff” with enough glitter and glam to resurrect Liberace’s corpse. There’s even a clever new practice for saxophonists to learn. So, find an apple, light up some sparklers, and join in on the feastivities below.
The Billboard-topping, Top Star-earning Modern Vampires of the City is currently available via XL Recordings.
