Famed music video director Hype Williams has pushed Jack White to new heights, or new lows, for Blunderbuss‘s latest single “Freedom 21.”
In the just-released video,” White plays an outlaw running the cops while a female Highway Patrol officer turns her attention to more than just ticketing the speed demon. In this Grindhouse style video, White’s visit to jail finds him a woman that just can’t keep her hands to herself. In what could be his sexist video yet, we’re also treated to some of the best guitar shredding in modern rock.
In a recent interview with CBS Local, White revealed that he actually did his own stunt driving, taking the beautiful bright green vintage HEMI ‘Cuda for joy ride in the canyons outside Los Angeles.
Between the ultra-fast guitar riffs and tattooed women writing all over White, “Freedom 21” is a must see. Watch closely as there’s a cameo at the end from another rock legend.
Blunderbuss is available everywhere.
