Actually, he's just being a dick about your taste in music ;-) For some reason, that Youtube video won't load for me. But Wikipedia seems to say they use a guitar with a pitch pedal, and not a bass.

when it comes to the white stripes, i don't really listen to them and i'm not a really big fan. they have a few songs which i think are ok. i think i've only heard about 5 songs out of their entire collection.

the white stripes are pretty good I not a huge huge fan but I like most of there stuff. Auri is correct they use a pedal not a bass my cousin has seen them live he was using the guitar for the main riff of "Seven Nation Army" he said.
