Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the video for White Stripes’ Blue Orchid is a dark tale full of strange and biblically-inspired visuals. For the promo, White Stripes frontman Jack White is cast as a Lucifer-like character, dressed in black and wielding a white cane that at one point turns into a snake. Meg White appears using a hammer to play a drum kit made up of dishes and other kitchenware.

US visual-effects house Kroma, which recently won a VES Award for its work on the Britney Spears Toxic video, was brought onboard by producer Gina Leonard to create the seamless effects Sigismondi required.

“I have a wish list of directors I want to work with and Floria has been on that list for as long as I’ve had it,” says Bert Yukich, Kroma’s visual-effects supervisor. “I’m a great admirer of her work for Bjork, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie as well as her photography and art work.”
