What Were You Thinking, Jack White?

Apparently Jack White has an obsession with the Insane Clown Posse. Some much so, that Jack collaborated with ICP for the instant classic, "Leck mich im Arse." Using Mozart's song of the same name White produced the music performed by Jeff the Brotherhood, while Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope laid down some vocals. Violent J is well aware that this song is only getting play because of the collaboration with White.
People are tripping out because the respected meets the non-respected in every way. That's what the whole news about this is. You know what I'm saying? Two respected artists working together--it wouldn't even be a big deal. But people are nuts, because it's like, "WHUUUT?!?"
I agree with Violent J. WHUUUT was Jack White thinking? Without ICP's rapping, this song would be a great reimagining of a strangely beautiful Mozart song. Mozart's original "Leck much Im Arse" literally translates to "lick me in the arse."Oh, Mozart.
