Jack White joins forces with Cards Against Humanity

OK then...

Jack White has teamed up with Cards Against Humanity to commemorate a concert on his current ‘Boarding House Reach’ tour.

The former White Stripes frontman, who released his third solo album in March, collaborated with the card game makers for a CAH-themed set of accompanying cards. It was to mark his show on Monday (November 19) at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom.

The show’s poster reads: “When Jack White performed at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago on Nov. 19, 2018, he surprised fans with _____.” It also includes the possible answers:

  • A quiet, poignant acoustic guitar ballad.
  • Jack White’s collection of taxidermied animal heads.
  • Jack White’s fuelled dementia.
  • Jack White’s mom coming on stage and dancing.
  • A bizarre partnership with Cards Against Humanity.
  • Jack White.

Take a look at the poster (made with Matthew Jacobson’s Magic Paper and printed by Kyle Baker) below.

In NME’s five-star review of White’s latest album, White’s latest effort was praised for taking listeners on a “wild, wild ride” of music that sounds like “Tom Waits meets the Beastie Boys“.

Elsewhere, Bradley Cooper reportedly approached White about playing the male lead in his hit movie A Star Is Born.

Cooper did not mention the name of the person that he approached but, according to Variety, an independent source confirmed that the director and actor spoke to White before studio bosses ultimately vetoed the idea.
