After A-Punk a while ago, here's another deceptively simple, beautifully conceptual Vampire Weekend performance video by Garth Jennings. And like A-Punk it just gets more enjoyable and rewarding each time you watch it.

There's no framerate-manipulation this time. The band really did go that fast, up and down the track - powered by four grips running as fast as possible. And here's an indication of Garth's pinpoint preparation: the video was assembled by Dom Leung during the shoot and technically finished as soon as they had the last shot.

Two and a half minutes of joy.
