How much will Wal-mart be selling those “dolls,”
though?

For
the upcoming “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” video, the Beastie
Boys undergo a transformation. Under the direction of Spike Jonze (who has
previously worked with the band on the classic “Sabotage” clip among
others), Ad-Rock, Mike D, MCA and guest vocalist Santigold become action
figures. (GI B Boys, as they put it.)

 

 

The
transformation comes with a price: “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win”
finds Beastie Boys and Santigold pursued by a team of assassins hell bent on
their termination. Over the course of the epic clip, our heroes make one death
defying escape after another, traveling across land, sea and sky as they elude
and combat snipers, zombies, sharks and more.

 

In the band’s own words: “Coming your
way this July.  Both short and epic length videos for the song we made
with Santigold.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!”

 

 

“Don’t
Play No Game That I Can’t Win” is the second video from Hot Sauce Committee Part Two (Capitol),
the first being the extended video for “Make Some Noise” a/k/a Fight
For Your Right Revisited, which was directed by the band’s own Adam
“MCA” Yauch.
