The Black Keys Release Hilarious 'MasterCourse' Video: Watch

The Black Keys have been promoting their latest album Let's Rock with some pretty hilarious content. In May Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney poked fun of their rumored animosity in the music video for "Go," and now they're going a step further by partnering up with Funny Or Die for a spoof "MasterCourse" video. In the clip, Auerbach and Carney dryly joke about stardom.

“I wrote that song while eating caviar with Michael Jordan in Paris," Auerbach says, guitar in hand. "He cheats at blackjack.” Later, Carney calls himself the frontman of the band, to his bandmate's dismay, and Auerbach shows off his guitar collection, making sure to say how much each one costs during his tour.

“We wrote Let’s Rock to prove to the world that we’re better people than everybody else," Auerbach says later in the clip. "Not just musically — all around better people. I’d say we proved them right.”

“After this course you’ll be able to write music like the pros,” Carney declares at the end of the video, with Auerbach adding, “unless you’re not naturally gifted like us, then we can’t really help you.”

Watch the hilarious video below.
