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.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
