Waits spent much of the past week emailing a series of cryptic photos to his fans. The first photo, captioned "Permission to come aboard," showed him as a swashbuckler. The second, "I can breathe underwater," had him underwater surrounded by sharks. The final shot, captioned "Never bring a gun to a spoon fight," portrayed him as a chef with a cartoonishly large spoon for a hand. Each image promised something coming on August 7, but no indication of what. There was some speculation of a new album, but it was revealed to be a music video for "Hell Broke Luce" from his most recent release, Bad As Me.
