At the stroke of midnight (oooh, creepy, eh?), all the stateside fans of The Dead Weather were privy to an exclusive debut of the Jack White directed video for I Cut Like A Buffalo (Version II).

The original video, also seeing White as captain in steering the directorial ship, showcased a stylistically strong colors juxtaposed with black and white footage. Version II, however, takes a much more simplistic approach, demonstrating the depth and beauty that can exist from a one shot take.

If you're intrigued and want to know what White can accomplish with just one shot, feel free to hit play below.

And don't think I've forgotten about my UK pals. It's not being released until October 26 but you can pre-order the single, I Cut Like A Buffalo, bundled with a cover of A Child og a Few Hours is Burning to Death, here.

Or, you know, download a live version of said cover from when The Dead Weather played NYC back in July.
