Vampire Weekend and actor Steve Buscemi have been spending a lot of time together lately, with Buscemi slated to direct the band’s live webcast from New York’s Roseland Ballroom on April 28.

In advance of the concert, Buscemi and the band teamed up this past Easter Sunday to take part in the annual New York City Easter Parade, where they handed out chocolate eggs and Buscemi belted out his own version of Vampire Weekend’s latest single, “Diane Young,” on a bullhorn.

A new comedic video released today (April 16) reveals the first time the band met the actor, who is allegedly related to Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio. The clip finds Buscemi awkwardly interacting with the band members, from mistaking the wrong Chris as his relative (drummer Chris Tomson) to fiddling with their gear while they rehearse, even going so far as to join in on keyboards and percussion while they play.
