The Beastie Boys Amass a Legion of Celebrities for New Video


So I wrote about this for one of my other sites a while back, that the Beastie Boys were assembling a cavalcade of celebrities to do…something in lieu of their latest release.

Well that “something” is here, and it’s a trailer for a 30 minute film that has the bizarre plot of old Beastie Boys fighting the new Beastie Boys. Strange, but even stranger when the two sets of three are played by Jack Black, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Elijah Wood, Seth Rogen and John C. Reily. Also guest starring are Ted Danson, Susan Sarandon and Will Arnett with a GREAT Arrested Development call back.

I don’t quite understand this project, but I’ll be damned if this isn’t kind of amazing.

    Can’t wait to see it! Toss Christopher Walken in there and you have the perfect film. We all saw how he danced in “Weapon of Choice.” Imagine what Walken would be like with the Beastie Boys backing up his moves.

    Interesting. Nice to see the Beastie Boys back. It’s funny how one of the most persistent rap groups of the last 3 decades is 3 Jewish men from New York that originally rapped over guitar hooks. I love them. I just always found that funny.

    Sabotage = One of the best music videos ever.

    Hahah, this video is amazing. It’s a promo for their new album, Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2! When I first saw this, I thought it was a trailer for an actual movie. I *so* would see this movie.
