Noomi Rapace joins The Rolling Stones for controversial Doom and Gloom video
Story by Jack Foley
THE Rolling Stones have just delivered a controversial new video clip directed by Jonas Akerlund and staring award winning Swedish actress Noomi Rapace – and it packs a punch.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Prometheus star jumped at the chance to get up close and personal with the Stones in Paris and the results are somewhat eye-catching.
The group filmed the footage behind closed doors in a Paris warehouse to promo their latest track, Doom and Gloom just prior to playing five big shows in London and New York.
Rather like the character in the movie Noomi plays a punk wild child who not only joins the Stones performance, she also goes in for some rather splendid rock n roll /trash the place type behaviour.
The actress goes into meltdown in one crazy sequence after another.
Fans will be stunned when she gets chased in a Louisiana swamp by evil zombies who end up in a shoot out, lies semi-naked on a bed of 100 dollar bills then sets fire to the money and flushes it down the toilet, gorges on junk food …throws up .. head explodes, dances at the roadside in skimpy outfit flashing at unsuspecting motorists, struts into shot with the band and takes over vocal performance from Jagger and drums for Charlie Watts.
The stunning promo is directed by the Swedish film maker Jonas Akerlun who won a Grammy Award for Ray Of Light by Madonna and who has also worked with Beyonce, Lady Gaga, The Prodigy and Christina Aguilera.
Doom and Gloom is taken from the album GRRR!, which is available this week.
