Pee Wee and The Raconteurs

The Raconteurs have teamed up with Paul Ruebens, best known for his work as Pee Wee Herman, (although some might dispute that he is best known for that), in a brand new video for their single, “Steady, As She Goes.” In this video, each band member plays an imaginative speed-racing hero in an old-fashioned soap box race, following the heroes on their cut-throat chase for first place. Ruebens plays an unscrupulous pit boss, stooping to low levels to ensure a win for his racer.

The video will premiere exclusively on Yahoo! Music ( ) on Monday, June 19th.
