Beastie Boys Partnering with Spike Jonze for New Video
While the Beastie Boys have provided plenty of hilarious videos over the course of their career, it’s impossible to forget the trio’s 1994 video for “Sabatoge.” The toupee-filled homage to ’70s cop shows has frequently been ranked as one of the best music videos of all time, so it comes as no surprise that the clip was directed by the multi-talented Spike Jonze (Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are, plenty of other awesome music videos).
In some pretty great news, the Beasties are once again teaming up with the director for the video for the track “Don’t Play No Game that I Can’t Win” off their recent LP, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. On Friday, the hip-hop group announced the partnership via their blog, along with a photo featuring a handful of action figures.
The boys’ post reads, “The video was directed by our esteemed colleague Mr. Spike Jonze. It is an explicit action adventure spectacular. It features action figures of us .and yes, they are ACTION figures, NOT dolls!”
There’s no word yet on when the video is scheduled for release, but in the meantime, watch “Sabotage” below.
