What does it say when a music video by an unknown director is better than 90% of the movies out there? Of course, it helps to have an all-star cast of B-movie actors, if such a thing makes sense. And that’s what you get with the video for The Black Keys’ “Howlin’ For You.” It’s a grindhouse-styled trailer set to their song, and while, yes, the grindhouse thing is getting a little out of hand (Hobo With A Shotgun, anyone?), it’s still a pretty amusing little short.

Directed by Chris Marrs, the short/music video stars Diora Baird, Sean Patrick Flannery, Tricia Helfer, Corbin Bernsen and… Shaun White. Talk about eclectic. Take a look:

I don’t know that it would make a good full-length film (grindhouse flicks are usually long on concept and short on execution), but it makes a hell of a music video. It even lets me forgive The Black Keys for the rest of Brothers.
