Recently, Jack White shared a photo on his Instagram account of him selling chocolate on the street with a young boy. Speaking to Rolling Stone about the picture, White explained the story behind the shot. "I was trying to help break up a disagreement between two young salesmen staking a claim for the same spot," he said of the image, which was taken near L.A. Airport. "I tried to get one of them to go in front of Starbucks down the block, but he didn't think you could sell any candy there. Free business advice to youngsters is part of every American's debt to society."
