Jack White released a raucous music video for his equally rowdy rock 'n' roll track "Sixteen Saltines" today. The video, directed by AJ Rojas, features an anarchist world where kids and teenagers have taken over to terrorize a town, one another and White.
The kids' antics are kind of hilarious, though mostly terrifying. Punk kids eating bread stuck to the ceiling with peanut butter, and a ten-year-old boy tattooing his entire body? Kind of funny. A 12-year-old couple playing a game of house that leads to domestic violence? Now that's disturbing.
The cliffhanger ending is the kicker, though. A young boy painted in peeling blue paint pours gasoline over a car with White bound by hand and foot inside. He pulls out a Zippo, then … well, you'll just have to watch to find out. The video was directed by AG Rojas.
"Sixteen Saltines" is a preview of White's upcoming solo album Blunderbuss.
