Beastie Boys Debut ‘Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win’ Video
What happens when the Beastie Boys, Santigold and a Yeti fight bad guys in that snow level from the ‘Goldeneye’ video game (or, alternately, that chilly dreamscape from ‘Inception‘)? Well, you can find the answer in Spike Jonze‘s new video for ‘Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win,’ a song off ‘Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2.’
The video features the Beasties as action figures doing cool action-hero stuff that is essentially every kid’s dream. The trio is thrown into action after a couple of bad guys sabotage their concert and, with some help from Santi, they pull off some maneuvers that Special Ops would be proud of.
Coming in the shadow of the star-studded ‘Fight for Your Right Revisited’ short film, we’d say the Beasties and Jonze have added another triumph into their videography. Watch both the extended 12-minute and short versions below.
