Here’s what Vampire Weekend’s “Diane Young” (the song) is about: living hard, living badly, living until you die — just like living, man. Here’s what “Diane Young” (the video) is about: “The Last Supper,” shirtlessness, marijuana — and, like, celebrities.
Celebrities everywhere! Santigold, Chromeo, and Sky Ferriera all cameo, as do Dave Longstreth and Hamilton Leithauser and more, plus a man in a mask. It’s celebrity Whac-A-Mole.
The song is so good. The video is so weird. Watch it below:
