Jack White Buys A $6,000 Elephant Head on 'American Pickers'

To music lovers, Jack White is known as the enigmatic frontman of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather. To Hollywood love life aficionados, he was the guy who Renée Zellweger went out with before she married Kenny Chesney.

Now, thanks to “American Pickers” on the History Channel, we now know Jack as a taxidermy collector.

“I’ve never hunted. I don’t think I ever could, but I really do love animals. And I love the majesty of taxidermy,” admitted White. He then had to put his money where his mouth was, as the Pickers tried to sell him a preserved head of an elephant.

Although he exclaimed, “I’m in love with it!” upon seeing the elephant head, this Grammy Award winner wasn’t ready to cough up the $12,500 asking price. With a trade-in of a black-and-white photobooth used in a Dead Weather video and his very first jukebox, he was able to cut the price in half.

See the transaction go down at around the 35:00 mark of “The Elephant In The Room.”

(Is it just me or would you also much rather have the photobooth and jukebox?)

    I wish I could afford one! Would make a great way to tie together a room. Hopefully someday I can get the elephant foot trashcan!

If the Syrian author of that poem could go vegan, anyone in our era can buck far milder social pressures and go vegan.
