Jack White Releases Lazaretto Video

(Radio.com) No modern rock star does eccentric as convincingly as Jack White - and so he delivers exactly what is expected with his video for "Lazaretto." It is a work of postmodern art, hitting all the hallmarks of the genre: ironic, referential and highly staged. Those attributes, executed in concert, are a delight to watch.

Directors Jonas & Franηois (Iggy Azalea, Kanye West) made their name as post-production effects specialists with Justice's "D.A.N.C.E." They pull off some stunners in this gravity-defying video in which broken glass never hurts a fly and exploding guitars are just part of a day's work.

The b-shots give us a collection of outsiders, reflective of Jack White's perceived image of himself. We get snakes (not, coincidentally, the animal that had humanity kicked out of heaven on Earth), a transgender person and a bull.
