The White Stripes To Rock 'The Daily Show', Use Conan For New Video

Published: 2005-10-06
Evidently, The White Stripes have a thing for late-night talk shows. Jack and Meg have announced that they will perform live on quite possibly the finest half-hour on television, a.k.a. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, on December 1. Musical performances are extremely rare on the show, which usually concerns itself with savagely satirizing the mainstream media. No word on whether or not the candy-striped duo will sit down for a few words with the hilarious Mr. Stewart.

And, in other White Stripes/Talk Show Host-related news, Conan O'Brien will make an appearance in the upcoming Michel Gondry-directed video for "The Denial Twist". In fact, O'Brien will feature prominently in the video for the third single from Get Behind Me Satan, as Gondry recently explained in an interview with MTV News.

"It's going to be a real -- how do you say it? -- a mindblower," said Gondry, already renowned for his eye-popping videos. "It is based on one day in Jack and Meg's life. It's re-enacting a day when they went to play on the Conan O'Brien show, in a very bizarre way. We see them playing on the stage, then they talk to Conan, and then they take their car and drive amongst giant people, and then they go home and watch their performance on TV. But the whole time, they will be distorted and stretched."

The White Stripes will begin a month long European tour in Paris on October 16.
