The roughly four-minute clip posted on April 22 shows Jagger testing out the new Rolling Stones pinball machine created by Stern Pinball, which is to be released later this year.
"Look at that," Jagger says along with Chris Lord-Alge before starting up the game which features various album covers such as 'Sticky Fingers,' 'Emotional Rescue,' 'Exile on Main Street' and 'A Bigger Bang,' along with stand-up images of Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards, guitarist Ronnie Wood and drummer Charlie Watts performing. None of the studios albums from their Decca era -- from their 1964 self-titled British release through to 1969's 'Let It Bleed' -- appear to be represented in the game.
According to Stern's site, the machine also features a "moving Mick target," a ball lock which changes the songs and artwork featuring the band members. It can also play 13 original Stones songs, including 'She's So Cold,' 'Love Is Strong,' 'Mixed Emotions' and 'Start Me Up' when the game begins.
As well, the game has an 'album multiball' which starts after hitting the Mick target, VIP targets which earn a mystery reward, a world tour scoring round and an 'encore wizard mode' that kicks in after hitting all the different game features.
"On guitar Keith Richards, on guitar Ronnie Wood," a voice with a British accent exclaims says as Jagger keeps playing before he hits the double jackpot. After Jagger's pinball goes between the flippers, the signature Rolling Stones tongue licks the random numbers to see if there's a match for an extra play.
If you got the silver, one play is 75 cents or $2 for three plays. Fans wanting more, er, satisfaction can also purchase the machine for $5,699 US through Stern. The machine isn't the first such Rolling Stones pinball machine. In 1980, Ballys created one featuring Jagger, Richards, Wood, Watt and then bassist Bill Wyman on the scoreboard but didn't include any music.
