Raconteurs debut Jim Jarmusch-lensed video

Can we mention again what a great fucking song this is?

Not much to say about the video, except that it was shot by Jim Jarmusch, and that  it appears to have been shot in less time than it takes to play the song. There's the part we're already referring to around here as the "running of the cows," and then there's the performance footage, which makes pre-Nevermind Sub Pop videos look like Anton Corbijn product. Earnest, though, and kinda hilarious how even though the band stays stonefaced, the camera starts freaking out in the chorus: that blur of arms, faces, instruments being a measure, perhaps, of how impossible it is not to start throwing yourself around the room when the guitars kick in.

WATCH: The Raconteurs, "Steady as She Goes" (by Jim Jarmusch, QuickTime video)
