The Video - The Dead Weather's "Treat Me Like Your Mother"

Stand up like a man. You better learn to shake hands. Treat me like your mother.

From the fine debut LP Horehound by The Dead Weather from some moons back, it'  the single "Treat Me Like Your Mother" - some sort of exploration of the gibberish of Sigmund Freud,  perhaps!

And here's the great promo, directed by Jonathan Glazer.

No, Horehound is not a tribute to Tiger Wood's sordid lecherous expolits with Vegas Waitresses, Cocktail Sweeties, Hostess Hotties, Pornstars .. and Truck Stop Hookers?

Nope. No golfclub wounds here! Only a nice piece of glorious noise!

 "Treat Me Like Your Mother" was the second single released from "Horehound" on May 25, 2009.

The great vid was rated number one in the top 50 videos of 2009 by NME, in the UK. .. Who the f*ck knew readers of NME had some taste!!

The vid's perhaps something of a satire on the dreaded suburban life of nothingness! Or a satire on modern mundanity! Or maybe not!

We get White and Mosshart walking across a bleak open space of nothingness outside another anonymous suburban neighbourhood, carrying automatic weapons and dressed in black leather jackets.

They then proceed to fire at each other, hitting each other many times - without either feeling any signficant impact.

The vid ends when they both run out of ammunition and White proceeds to leave, walking off into the sunset! ... Love it!

Obama's gonna use this thing as a recruiting too for his next fraudulent so-called "war"!

The line "you blink when you breathe and you breathe when you lie ... you blink when you lie" was also obviously dedicated to Obama!
