The White Stripes Icky Thump album is one of the handsomest USB music packaging I’ve seen. It was nominated for a Grammy in “Category 89: Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package”. Removing their respective hats reveals the USB dongle, plug it in, and you’ll get all of the Icky Thump tracks in Apple Lossless format. The Meg version does not speak. The Jack unit gets pissy if you try to make him pose in front of a yellow wall. The album was released as limited edition USB drives, each of the 6,666 produced (3,333 of Meg & 3,333 of Jack). More info here about the bands obsession with the number 3.
Would you buy this pair for $99?
