Video Premiere: RZA & Black Keys - "The Baddest Man Alive"

RZA does battle with the guys from the Black Keys in a restaurant and no food or person is safe.

In this article…

Let's admit it, one of the best parts of eating Chinese food is the fortune cookie you get for dessert. For some reason people love ripping open that cookie just to have a piece of paper tell them something about themselves. People see it as the equivalent to going to see a real fortune  teller, minus the weird accents and horrible smelling incense. It is as if the fortune cookie is edible law. 

This concept is the central theme of the RZA and Black Keys Music video for "The Baddest Man Alive." The Chris Marrs Piliero-directed video is a nod to the chopsocky film style that blends martial arts with ridiculous over the top event. RZA and both Black Key members fight over a single fortune cookie and things get a bit out of hand in the restaurant. It happens to us and RZA and the Black Keys are no different. I remember the first time I ripped an arm off a restaurant patron. Sure it was tragic, yes I did feel bad, but I wanted that dessert and no man or apendage was going to stop me. Let this video be a lesson to Chinese restaurant owners: bring more than one fortune cookie to the table.
