Jack White's saucy new video

Freedom at 21, the new single from Jack White, is a bit of a puzzle. The song is based on a barely-disguised rewrite of the Seven Nation Army riff (a riff on a riff, if you will), while the video finds White gurning like a man who's just downed a pint of bad milk.

It doesn't help that director Hype Williams has desaturated every shot White is in, making him look like Johnny Depp in his Willy Wonka phase (Josh Homme also pops up in a cameo, being all policey).

So, it's all a bit of a mess - but it's a glorious mess. And a serious contender for video of the week.

(Apologies for the risqué thumbnail on the video. Not my fault, guv.)
