The Rolling Stones – “Doom And Gloom” Video (Feat. Noomi Rapace) (NSFW)

By Tom Breihan / November 21, 2012

It’s tough to rationalize the existence of new Rolling Stones music in 2012, and it’s even tougher to figure out what the hell is going on in the video for their new single “Doom And Gloom.” As far as I can tell, the video captures the fever dreams of actress Noomi Rapace, as she falls asleep under a Stones-logo neon light — dreams that involve her decapitating zombies, stuffing her face with food until it explodes, flushing hundred-dollar bills down a shit-encrusted toilet, replacing various members of the Stones as they slither around a soundstage, and showing almost as much boob as she does in all three Swedish Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movies. Jonas Åkerlund directs, and I would be fascinated if someone could tell me who this video is supposed to be for. In any case, it’s below.
