The Black Keys, Framed

Framed

Few bands have been bringin' it lately like the Black Keys, the bluesy rock duo from Ohio who took home three Grammys a few weeks back. And the Keys - vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer/producer Patrick Carney - have been making some damn funny videos for their latest album, Brothers.

Last year's "Tighten Up" was quite good, but their latest, "Howlin' For You," is really exceptional. Instead of a video for a song, it's a trailer for a movie... a B-movie that features hot babes, stunning clichés, and stars on the level of skateboarder Shaun White and the great Todd Bridges of Different Strokes, identified here as Sir Todd Bridges.

So give it up, if you will, for the Black Keys, our captions, and everything else that makes life worth living. Ladies and gentlemen, Las Teglas de Negro!
