Vampire Weekend, Steve Buscemi March in Easter Parade Together


Possibly trying to regain some goodwill after the bizarre public relations nightmare that ignited over the decision to torch a few Saabs in their new ‘Diane Young’ video, Vampire Weekend recruited beloved character actor Steve Buscemi to march with them in yesterday’s (March 31) Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival in New York City.

Marching with a huge banner emblazoned with the band’s name, VW and Buscemi handed out chocolate bunnies to the crowd. At one point, Buscemi grabbed a cheerleader megaphone and sang ‘Diane Young’ — due to appear on the band’s forthcoming ‘Modern Vampires of the City’ album — for the crowd, although honestly, his performance was half-hearted at best. Check out footage of the bizarre happening above and photos of their parade appearance here. By the way, Vampire Weekend eventually apologized for the Saab burning, saying they were “stunned” by the backlash.
