Grimes Appears in Steve Buscemi’s New Vampire Weekend Webcast Promo

“Do you remember when you first fell in love with Easter,” Vampire Weekend‘s Chris Baio asks actor Steve Buscemi in a new promo video (watch above) for the band’s upcoming American Express Unstaged live webcast, which Busemi will direct. Buscemi oddly waxes nostalgic about the holiday — “I couldn’t sleep the night before, thinking about how many eggs I was gonna get,” he recalls — and the whole thing comes across as pretty awkward and totally random, much like the entire Buscemi/Vampire Weekend association, which started when he appeared with the band at this year’s Easter parade in New York City.

That clip doesn’t come close to the awkwardness of the other new Unstaged promo, which features Canadian cutie pie Grimes in a seemingly chance encounter with Buscemi in an NYC park (watch it below). Steve invites Grimes to Easter brunch. Grimes gracelessly declines, and life goes on.

So, what do Grimes, Vampire Weekend, Steve Buscemi and Easter have to do with each other? That deep mystery remains unanswered, but perhaps it will all come together when VW finally take the stage of NYC’s Roseland Ballroom under Buscemi’s watchful directorial eye. The Vampire Weekend Unstaged webcast goes live April 28.
