Uglies wanted

They started off looking long-haired, pale and freakish, before getting cleaned up and revealing themselves to be one of the better-looking bands in rock. So perhaps Kings of Leon are trying to get back to their roots with their new video.

The band put an advert in US classifieds site Craigslist, the NME reports, to recruit fans to star in the video for their next single. But not just any fans: the article specifically requested 'characters with scars, pockmarked skin, physical abnormalities or deformities'. People who look 'unattractive' or 'a little slow' were reportedly also invited to apply.

What's the plan - a southern-gothic freakshow, or a confidence-building makeover from these former ugly ducklings? We'll have to wait and see.
