Kings of Leon: Taking it a Little Too Far For Their Upcoming Music Video?

Kings of Leon has stooped to a new low by bringing a potentially offensive yet interesting idea to the table, according to NME.

The band posted an ad in an effort to recruit "characters with scars, pockmarked skin, physical abnormalities or deformities" for their next music video.

In the ad, Kings of Leon also offered $300 a day to fans who were willing to participate in the two-day video shoot, which will begin November 19. They wanted people who look "rough around the edges" and "a little slow." Really, guys?

Well, at least they were straightforward with what they want. I can't decide if they've got what could be a good concept for a music video, but either way, the video better be good since they're specifically degrading uglies.
