Beastie Boys – Star-Studded, Badass Video

14 Jun

If you haven’t seen this, you need to watch it immediately.  Fellow NSD writer GaddafiDuck sent me this weeks ago telling me to watch it, and I put it off and put it off (it’s a 30 minute music video, what?) as he got increasingly angry.  I now see why.  I’ve never been a huge Beastie Boys fan past the obvious classics (Sabotage, Fight for Your Right, etc) but this blew me away.  The Beastie Boys assembled one of the most star studded casts in recent memory for this twentieth anniversary video: Seth Rogan, John C. Reilly, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Danny McBride, and Elijah Wood star as the old and new versions of the group (it will make sense when you watch it), with cameos from Stanley Tucci, Susan Sarandon, Rashida Jones, Will Arnett, Adam Scott, Rainn Wilson, Ted Danson, Roman Coppola, Steve Buscemi, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzmann, Alicia Silverstone, Laura Dern, Kirsten Dunst, Chloe Sevigny, Maya Rudolph, David Cross and Martin Starr.  If you don’t feel like watching it all, fast forward to about minute 23, and you’ll be hooked immediately.  The next time you are about to watch some terrible network sitcom rerun because there is nothing on TV, watch this instead. You’ll thank me, I promise.
