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.
