Jack White has always been known for being a smidgen strange. The White Stripes music video for “Icky Thump” centers on Jack who is disoriented and wandering around Mexico.
The video begins with him falling and hitting his head, following a woman with one white eye, confusingly walking into a bar singing about Icky Thump who winds up being “handcuffed to a bunk and robbed blind” by a prostitute. There are many scenes mixed into the video of Jack and Meg White performing the song clad in red in a red room.
In true White Stripes fashion, Meg is playing the drums hard while Jack sings. The video is fun, shows a lot of stereotypical Mexican culture (Mariachis included), and tells a story, which is more than I can say for a lot of videos out there.
