Here's another indie group that has found themselves featured in commercials for just about everything: Vamprire Weekend and their video for "Holiday":
Not sure why, but the imagery of men in clothing out of the 1700's riding around L.A. in Chevy Impala cracks me up. Add in a bit of uncharacteristic partying, and for some reason I love this video!

Not much has happened with the car. Nothing, in fact. Put gas in and drove it--all the way to North Carolina! Unfortunately, the weather was a little cold and it rained all Friday night, but I still had a good time! I left the house at 6.30am and drove top down all the way with a stop in Lexington for breakfast with a friend I was doing a caravan with to get there. I finally arrived at my cabin at Nantahala Village at 3.30pm, totally pooped!
I managed to get some driving done despite the rain. Here is a shot of me on my way in, just up the hill from the Crossroads and the Motorcycle Resort. I actually made the front page of Killboy.com, but was pretty far in the background (or in the front, depending on where you were standing):
I also went fishing with some of my friends while I was down there. Admittedly, I've fished about twice in my life, so "rusty" was not the word! However, after a couple hours, I managed to reel this one in:
I even got to fly my Solo Pro in the cabin!
|Squint reeeeeeal hard and you'll see me heading around the bend!|
|Yeah...it's tiny, but at least I got to eat it!|
