“G.I. Joe can suck it–the Beasties make way better action figures in this hilarious Spike Jonze-helmed epic (A+)”–ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
(July 18, 2011–NEW YORK, NY) Starring action figures of Ad-Rock, Mike D, MCA and guest vocalist Santigold, Beastie Boys’ thrill-packed, Spike-Jonze-directed “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” will premiere in its short “episodic” version 9 p.m. EST tonight at FunnyorDie.com.
The premiere of the extended version of “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” will follow as of 12:01 A.M. PST/3:01 A.M. EST at BeastieBoys.com where both versions will be available to view. “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” finds Beastie Boys and Santi 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.
“Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” is the second video from Beastie Boys’ universally acclaimed 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 and which TIME magazine described as having more stars “than in a Judd Apatow flick.”
