The Black Keys And RZA’s ‘Baddest Man Alive’ Video: Food-Fu

In new video from 'Man with the Iron Fists' soundtrack, Wu-mastermind goes head-to-head with the Keys.

[artist id=”1228321″]The Black Keys[/artist] and [artist id=”1122″]RZA[/artist] get down to some serious food-fu in the brand new “The Baddest Man Alive” video, which sees them engaging in all manners of hand-to-hand (and comestible-to-comestible) combat to determine just who is the baddest of the bunch.

Yes, lettuce is shredded, fish are flung and lo-mein is lobbed with impunity in the tongue-in-cheek clip, as the Keys and the Wu-mastermind battle it out in a Chinese restaurant … all over a fortune cookie (they are pretty tasty, after all). Directed by Chris Marrs Piliero — who directed the Black Keys’ similarly pulpy “Howlin’ For You” — the “Baddest” clip is most definitely a loving ode to the Z-Grade chop-sockey films of old, all over-the-top machismo, wide-eyed staredowns and exaggerated flexing (in a way, it also recalls another Keys’/Piliero team-up, the VMA-winning “Tighten Up” video … at least in the amount of punishment Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney take).
