Creepy Video Surfaces From Jack White’s Secret Show in a Psych Ward

David James Swanson

Remember back in early July when Jack White staged an elaborate secret show at a fictitious medical clinic in London called Vescovo? Well apparently that’s not completely over yet.

It all started a little over a month ago when White offered some cryptic clues online, including a fake video supposedly from 1948 that discussed a disease outbreak and offered clues to curious fans. Those who figured out what was up were called with information leading them to the super-secret show at an unused office building that was turned into the Vescovo & Co. Clinic for Contagious Diseases; White even staffed the whole thing with gown-clad doctors, nurses and orderlies (all from the Punchdrunk immersive theater group).

Once inside, fans were asked to change into powder-blue gowns and were shuttled from room to room in the office building where they were examined. Eventually, an alarm sounded and they were all herded into the smoke-filled basement where White and his band performed a 30-minute set until the frontman, according to a press release recapping the show, ”fell to the ground in a fit of convulsions before being strapped to a stretcher and wheeled off to a waiting ambulance.”

On Aug. 19, White posted a grainy video and a statement reportedly from one of the “nurses” at the clinic.

The truth about Vescovo – A message from Nurse Hopper:
I am Nurse Nancy Hopper, the last survivor of the outbreak at Vescovo & Co’s London clinic. I don’t have long left but wanted you to know the truth. You are receiving this message because you appear on the Vescovo database and may be at risk.
Here is the only footage I could salvage from that night.

Be careful.

So what does this recent development mean? Will there be more secret shows? Maybe a full-length video? Watch the new clip below and let us know what you think.
