JONAS AKERLUND Unleashes Rolling Stones “Doom and Gloom”

24.01.2013 - Posted by : Black Dog

Jonas Åkerlund directs the video for The Rolling Stones’ first release in seven years with the worldwide hit “Doom and Gloom.”  Helping Åkerlund to bring the apocalyptic lyrics to life is International muse and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star actress Noomi Rapace.

Filmed behind closed doors in a Paris warehouse, the video features (a sometimes-topless) Rapace running through a series of moral meltdowns within fast-paced footage of WWII bombers, zombie battles, homelessness, hard partying, and eating so much junk food that her head explodes.  The mind-melting sequences seem even more surreal interspersed with performance footage of a 69-year old Jagger and Co. rocking out like nothing has changed.

Leave it to Åkerlund to create the suitably over-the-top vision for the world’s greatest rock and roll band.
