Jerry Seinfeld stars in Vampire Weekend's Jonah Hill-directed video for "Sunflower"

There’s plenty of stars to be found in the new music video for Vampire Weekend’s new single, “Superflower,” from Jerry Seinfeld to rapper Fab 5 Freddy to The Internet’s Steve Lacy, whose dynamic guitar work can be heard on the funky, dreamy track. The Seinfeld get is especially huge for Vampire Weekend, who’ve never been shy about their love for the bygone ‘90s sitcom.

Hill’s woozy camera rotates with drunken abandon, spinning in split-screen through both Zabar’s and the Barry Greengrass deli as frontman Ezra Koenig guides the song’s dreamy melodies.
