Vampire Weekend and The Black Keys Visit The Colbert Report, Argue Over Who's Sold Out More

Posted By on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 11:17 AM

We owe Mr. Rob Harvilla a tremendous debt of gratitude this morning, for calling our attention to this video, in which Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig and both members of The Black Keys take to the Colbert Report, where they engage in a "sell-out-off" to determine which band has whored their music out to more corporations. My favorite part? When Colbert asks Koenig, "As an artist, is Honda what you had in mind when you wrote "Holiday"?" No, Stephen," he replies, "We actually wrote it for Tommy Hilfiger."
