Come on...isn't anyone excited about the joint promos that the White Stripes are doing with Nissan. Hopefully, this will get them more play on MTV, I don't think they have enough.
"City officials pulled the plug on a free White Stripes show in New York's Union Square Park yesterday, but not before thousands of fans took in a good forty minutes of Detroit's dynamic duo in action. Parks department officials abruptly cut power to the stage in the middle of a song, explaining later that the show was shut down for being too loud. The free show was presented by Nissan - which makes for an odd alliance, as Jack White has often criticized the car industry in interviews. "
Alright -- who really thinks "City Officials" pulled the plug? Give me an f'in break. Can't you just hear Jack White, his A&R guy, and the rep from Nissan's agency saying -
Nissan Rep: "...after exactly 40 minutes, let's just stop and we'll send out a release saying the city made us quit"
Jack White: "But after 40 minutes right?!?!"
A&R Rep: "Exactly, it'll be MAD!! Get the press release over to Carson Daly - STAT!"
I hope Jack has developed callouses on his knees at this point.
