Here’s how I think the concept of the music video for “Freedom at 21” (the third single off Jack White‘s solo debut album Blunderbuss) came around:
Hype Williams: Hey, Jack! So great to work with you! You’ve made some of the best music videos ever! Now listen, I was thinking we could do another stop-motion video, like Fell In Love With A Girl, or The Hardest Button to Button
Jack White: WHORES!
HW: … I’m sorry?
Jack White: BRING ME WHORES!
HW: Damn … all right, how many do you think you’ll –
Jack White: ALL OF THEM!
HW: I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.
