Jack White gets a new pal
The Raconteurs have made a new video for their debut single ‘Steady, As She Goes’ – starring Pee Wee Herman actor Paul Reubens.
The promo follows Jack White and Brendan Benson‘s band on an old fashioned soapbox car race, with Reubens as a devious pit boss stooping to low levels to ensure a win for his racer.
It’s the second video was made for the track – a clip directed by Jim Jarmusch has been airing regularly since the single’s proper release in April.
Reubens is best known for his role as manchild Pee Wee Herman, though he has appeared in many other films, including ‘Batman Returns’, ‘Blow’ and ‘Dr Doolittle’.
The Raconteurs head back to Europe next week – they play the O2 Wireless Festival in London’s Hyde Park on June 21 before heading for the mainland for a host of summer festival shows.
A second single will be lifted from the band’s debut album ‘Broken Boy Soldiers’ in the near future, and is likely to be ‘Hands’.
