[photogallerylink id=52238 align=left]One of VH1′s hit shows “Pop Up Video” returned to televisions everywhere last month and they kicked off their comeback right with two new videos. If you aren’t familiar with the program, the popular factoid video show splices in bits of rock and roll trivia into music videos from a variety of artists. [lastfm]Vampire Weekend[/lastfm]‘s “Holiday” made the cut for the new episode and they get pretty interesting.

[photogallerylink id=34888 align=left]Vampire Weekend definitely knows how to spend their vacation. In their video Holiday, the Columbia University alums cruise around Hollywood in a baby blue convertible, crash pool parties, and beat up surfer dudes, all while wearing costumes that look like they are from the Elizabethan era. While the video is hilarious by itself, you learn that the band pulled a lot of illegal moves in order to create the video.
