Michel Gondry Made a New White Stripes Music Video, and Yes Sirree, It’s Whimsical As Heck


It must be fun to be friends with Michel Gondry. Every once in a while, the director could just call you up out of the blue and say something along the lines of "Hey, I made a music video for that shelved single you were going to put out back in 2005 and are finally releasing now." And you'd say, "Oh, you mean 'City Lights,' originally written for Get Behind Me Satan, now out on the compilation album Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016? Thanks, Michel! This is a great addition to the other four you've made for us." (Note: You have to be a member of the White Stripes, ideally Jack White, for this exchange to fully work.)
