Jack White debuts interactive video for 'That Black Bat Licorice'

Though famously disdainful of modern technology and a lover of all things retro and weird, Jack White's new interactive video for Lazaretto single "That Black Bat Licorice" has a decidedly modern twist. Holding down the "3" or "B" keys on your keyboard toggles between three videos, each with a different director. The animated video was directed by James Blagden, the "Headbang" video was directed by Brad Holland (yes, that's former MT contributor Ben Blackwell rocking out), and the live action video was directed by Mr. White himself.

View the video below, or over at White's official site.
