VOTD: Spike Jonze Directs Beastie Boys Action Figures in Video For ‘Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win’
Posted on Tuesday, July 19th, 2011 by Russ Fischer
Spike Jonze and the Beastie Boys go way back, to 1994, ‘Sabotage,’ and the first volleys of a revival of the ’70s movie aesthetic. Their latest melding of the minds is a stop-motion animated video for the recent Beasties track ‘Don’t Play No Games That I Can’t Win,’ in which the band, guest Santigold and a host of other characters are all brought to life via old-school action figures. (Think big early Mego figures and first-wave G.I. Joes.)
The clip starts off pretty tame, but eventually veers into Dead Snow territory. Sound intriguing? Hit the jump.
