Obviously, boat shoe band Vampire Weekend hired Richard Ayoade to direct their video in a transparent attempt to light up the COMEDY BLOGOSPHERE the same way they lit up the TWEE MUSIC BLOGOSPHERE a few months ago. This, after their first attempt — dressing like Chevy Chase circa 1980 — failed.

Well this one worked. Because only jerks and the ignorant don’t like Richard Ayoade.
