It's taken us most of the day to make heads and/or tails of this video for "Falling Down," the first single from Scarlett Johansson's album of Tom Waits covers. But as far as unintentional A-list homages to the meandering road-life videos of the '80s go (remember "Kyrie"? No? OK, well, here), we have seen much worse. As intentional A-list homages to meandering, gravel-throated rock legends go, however, Johansson has her work cut out for her. By the time she gets around to her follow up, we're sure she'll have the earnestness bug licked and her ironic prime sprawling before her. Our money is on a full-length tribute to James Brown, but really, anything funkier than Tom Waits would probably do just as well.
