video: Tom Waits – ‘Satisfied’

Here’s a very direct, no-nonsense dealing directed by Bob’s son Jesse Dylan and starring Tom Waits himself. This is the very first official flick from Waits’ newest album Bad As Me, and was released first thing this morning.

In a simple but effective black and white tone, Waits cavorts expertly around a carnival scenario in his recognized salesman-under-a-street-lamp stance. If he tours in 2012, I’d expect a similarly theatrical and visual stage show, complete with street lamp and dirt.
