The Black Keys Hate Their Own Music Video (and who could blame them)
– by Maxwell Silver
When I first saw the video for The Black Keys’ new track “Next Girl”, I thought for sure it was a clever spoof by some film school brat who happened to have some very fine looking women tolerate being stalked and bothered by a stupid dinosaur hand puppet.
Auerbach was quoted in Express Night Out about the video: “It’s weird because we hate it so much and think it’s really stupid and not funny at all and not smart or clever in any way, but it’s got, like, 6 gazillion hits. I wrote the scroll. I said, ‘”The only way I would allow this stupid fucking video on the Internet is if you put this on the bottom’ — and they did it.” Doesn’t matter though, in my opinion; it still is not good for the band’s image.
Part of the text for the scrolling message on the video reads: “This is an attempt by their record label to attract attention to the band using a ridiculous dinosaur puppet.”
