Though my Twitter feed was blowing up today with links to the new Black Keys video for Brothers‘ “Tighten Up,” I assumed people were simply discovering Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney’s dinosaur puppet-starring YouTube video to the tune, which hit made the rounds last month. Just clicked through, however, when lo and behold: a brand new killer video from the Akron duo.
In this “Tighten Up” video treatment, Auerbach and Carney bring their sons to a local playground where the boys serenade girls to the Black Keys’ latest single. And in case you’re wondering whether drummer Patrick Carney’s son in the video is his actual son (and wears the exact same eyeglass frames), Auerbach sets the record straight in a recent “making of” video: “I think it’s frightening, the idea of Pat having a child,” he joked.
