Watch Beastie Boys’ ‘Fight for Your Right — Revisited’ Video
The Beastie Boys return with one of the most epic music videos ever made. Written and directed by the cancer-fighting Adam “MCA” Yauch, the 30-minute ‘Make Some Noise’ aka ‘Fight for Your Right – Revisited’ video, which leaked last week, picks up where the trio’s pie-throwing 1986 ‘(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)‘ video left off. The ‘Revisted’ version has been floating around on the Internet since premiering on MTV2 and Comedy Central last week.
‘Make Some Noise’ aka ‘Fight for Your Right – Revisited’ begins with actor Elijah Wood as Ad Rock, Seth Rogan as Mike D and Danny McBride as MCA terrorizing their NYC neighborhood. They vandalize a bodega before getting picked up by their girlfriends — played by Chloe Sevigny, Kirsten Dunst and Maya Rudolph — in a limo where they sip on Prosecco, eat acid and huff nitrous oxide balloons. Strung out they encounter the Beastie Boys of the future — played by Will Ferrell as Ad Rock, Jack Black as MCA and John C. Reilly as Mike D — who try to take things over from there.
This all happens within the first 15 minutes of the film, which also plays as an extended music video for ‘Make Some Noise,’ the lead single off the Beasties’ eighth studio album, ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part 2.’ A five-minute version of the ‘Make Some Noise’ video dropped last week.
The BoomBox won’t reveal all of the secrets of the long-form video because it’s a must-see. But the Beasties do make cameos. Watch the video after the jump and pick up ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part 2′ when it lands on May 3. The Brooklyn bad brothers are currently streaming the album in its entirety via HotSauceCommittee.com.
