Friday Video Premiere

Every Friday, we're highlighting a specific video (or two, or three) for your end of week enjoyment.

We'll give you a break this week from soccer (remember to watch the Euro Final on Sunday!) and will present you with two music videos

First up? Lil' Wayne's "A Milli" live at MTV

This is easily the best song on his album "Tha Carter III" (which happens to have the greatest cover of all time):


This is just an incredible live performance. Weezy F. Baby looks like he's in Tron or in some video game..and it's beautiful because whatever camera lens MTV uses for the shot makes it look more live and real..and cheap.

Then, Weezy goes berzerk and rips the roof off of the building (and he has a live band!) before walking backstage and getting on his bus. Is it scripted? Yeah, but that doesn't make it any less cool.

Next? Vampire Weekend's "Oxford Comma"

Yeah, the song isn't as cool as their first single, "Mansard Roof", but it's still a pretty cool video. And, I mean, who gives an f about an oxford comma? I do. I doooo.
