Treat Me Like Your Mother by Dead Weather

Props go out to Buck, one of my old co-workers, for pointing this video out. We definitely don’t share a love of Jack White, but we both love the directorial work of Jonathan Glazer. I honestly know nothing about this band, but the video features Jack White and some chick with her hair dyed black. They’re walking along the undeveloped area of a suburban housing community, very similar to where I grew up, singing and shooting each other up.

The video is filled with lots of beautiful scenes of shoout outs and squibs firing left and right. But the real awesomeness doesn’t start till about 4:15, where Jonathan Glazer really starts to shine… that’s sort of a pun, once you get to that part.

    the “chick with her hair dyed black” is Alison Mosshart. Also in another insane band – The Kills. :)

    Oh I didn’t even realize that was her! haha
    I’m just not a big Jack Stripes fan, although I think he’s definitely a talented guy.

    Yeah I have to say that I’m not a huge fan of either The White Stripes or The Kills but The Dead Weather is really quite awasome! There’s also a dude from QOTSA playing in the band and Jack’s buddy Little Jack from The Raconteurs. Good stuff, shall watch the video now.

    This is like a quentin Tarrantino film. Indulgent, but in a good way.
