Jake Gyllenhaal, RZA, Lil Jon, and Joe Jonas Play Tennis for Vampire Weekend

The video for Vampire Weekend's "Giving Up the Gun" came out today, an event we excitedly anticipated last night, and it's a delightful Matrix-meets-Tenenbaums piece of pop cake. It also teaches us several important lessons, like how RZA's the best line judge of all time and Lil Jon's secret words of wisdom will make you spit hot fire. We also can't help but be reminded of Metal on Metal's amazing "Bastard" video — the one featuring two Asian girls playing Ping-Pong with a grenade. A grenade! Definitely worth a watch if you're in a violent-musical-sports kind of mood.
