Grizzly Bear video for "Two weeks"

So I have been listening to the upcoming Grizzly Bear album Veckatimest nonstop since I got it on monday (I still haven't settled on a pronunciation, however) and there are several standouts on the album, barely a song that I don't like really..but it seems as if their first single is going to be "Two Weeks" (and rightly so, its the first one that jumped out at me) and the music video is one of the best I've seen in a long time.

It was directed by one of my favorite video makers since Gondry, Patrick Daughters, who has also worked on many of Feist's quirky videos and a couple off of Bright Eye's Cassadaga is that video (sorry for the myspace video embed..)..make sure to watch to the gets way better than the beginning (unless you are as entertained/ amazed at the almost cartoonish 50's style faces/outfits the band is wearing..then you might think the beginning is just as good).. Cue the slanted eye blinks!:
