Third Man Records Releases Spooky 'Security Camera' Footage From Jack White's Secret Show in London

Posted By on Tue, Aug 19, 2014 at 7:18 PM

By now you've probably heard all about that Facebook satire button for folks who can't tell reliable sources from fake news. Well, it doesn't work in real life, but that's not always such a bad thing, as a bunch of Jack White fans in London found out back on July 3. As reported by The Guardian, uneasy fans responded to calls and texts luring them into a spooky, rundown hospital building in central London, purported to be the headquarters of Vescovo & Co., where expert members of the immersive-theater troupe Punchdrunk put on a mock epidemic outbreak for their benefit.

Playing along with the gag, White and band appeared and performed a short set, which ended with a convulsing White being hauled off on a stretcher. The above "security camera" footage was "salvaged" and released just today, teased by Third Man Records on their Facebook page (see the message from "Nurse Nancy Hopper" block-quoted after the jump). The whole spiel is a clever play on the theme of White's new chart-topping LP Lazaretto, for sure. The timing seems a bit coincidental, considering the current Ebola epidemic, but the concert did indeed go down before news of the outbreak began to make national headlines a few weeks ago.


I am Nurse Nancy Hopper, the last survivor of the outbreak at Vescovo & Co’s London clinic. I don’t have long left but wanted you to know the truth. You are receiving this message because you appear on the Vescovo database and may be at risk.
Here is the only footage I could salvage from that night.

Be careful.
