He may not be a Twilight fan, but Joe Jonas is pretty open about his love for another vampire, the band Vampire Weekend. He's such a fan that Joe is in their latest music video. Also making cameos in the video for "Giving Up the Gun" are Lil Jon, Jake Gyllenhaal, and RZA.

"Giving Up the Gun just means turning your back on aggression and selfishness," the band says about the video's crazy tennis match. "The heroine of the video isn't an amazing tennis player but she has heart. She stays calm despite the unfairness of it all. The band (Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Tomson and Chris Baio) also described Joe's time on set saying there was "a lot of improvisation and some surprisingly powerful serves."

Check out Joe's sweet moves in the video - who knew he was so flexible? Vampire Weekend's album, 'Contra,' is available on iTunes now.
