Raconteurs Launch New Video, "Antique Roadshow" Knockoff

November 12, 2008 9:00 AM ET

The Raconteurs have unveiled a new video for their Consolers Of The Lonely track "Old Enough." The clip finds the band gallivanting through a forest of mirrors, with Jack White dressed like he's reprising his character from Cold Mountain. What's surprising about the video is how it has absolutely nothing to do with the Antique Roadshow-inspired viral site the Raconteurs rolled out yesterday. Over at the From Old To Gold website, the band asks fans to upload video of "treasured items and thrift store finds" and the band will tell you if it's "old...or gold." Thus far, no additional videos have been posted to the site's YouTube page, but you should still check out the humorous clip that kicked off the search for antiques here.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
