Black Keys Having Some Fun Promoting New Album, El Camino-Style

Share on Nextdoor


The Black Keys' seventh album, El Camino, comes out December 6. In anticipation, Akron's sons have some interesting advertising out, including an ad in last Sunday's Beacon Journal for a 1994 El Camino that was really a van. may have come across an odd, seemingly out-of-place listing for a 1994 El Camino, which actually showed a beatdown ’90s Dodge Caravan in the photo.

The description was equally odd, touting “sapphire stylus, some ticks/pops, light surface noise,” and other attributes not generally associated with used cars.

The listing ends with “Grab the Keys and go! Call Pat or Dan” with a local phone number; when called, it reveals a voice that sounds a lot like Black Keys drummer Pat Carney, suggesting you leave a message.

There's also the video embedded below. More where that came from at, the Keys' micro site for the new album.
