In Memoriam: A Beastie Boys Adventure
Originally pegged as a frat boy rap trio with their breakthrough album Licensed to Ill, The Beastie Boys proved to be much more creative and capable musicians with such jazz/funk instrumental albums as The In Sound from Way Out and The Mix-Up.
Their music videos showed equally creative inspiration, and after hearing the sad news of Beastie Boys co-founder Adam Yauch passing away following a long battle with cancer, what better opportunity than now to throw the spotlight on the brilliant Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win (featuring Santigold) video directed by Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things Are, Being John Malkovich).
Taken from 2011's Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, watch the full-length explicit director's cut that's a full-tilt throwback to '70s childhood, when a handful of old-school G.I. Joe toys, a love of monster movies and a fertile imagination went a looong way. Enjoy.
