Beastie Boys are partnering with toy manufacturer Super 7 to release a line of action figures based on The Beasties "Sabotage" alter egos as portrayed in the music video. The video, which was directed by Spike Jonze, portrayed the Beastie Boys as fictional 1970s movie stars. The song is from the Beastie Boys' 1994 critically acclaimed album Ill Communication.
It's here. The Beastie Boys' new music video for "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win", featuring Santigold, from new album Hot Sauce Committee Part 2. Directed by Spike Jonze, it features action figures of all three members of the band as well as Santigold, and it is awesome. Have you ever seen an action figure crowd surf? Now you have.
Ch-ch-check it out: Beastie Boys action figures. Not the tracksuit wearing, VW-logo-stealing, loud-mouthed Beastie Boys of old, but the boiler-suited Beastie Boys from the amazing Spike Jonze-directed Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win video. If you haven't seen the video, here it is in all its eleven-minute glory:
Beastie Boys fans were delighted when the band released its music video for Sabotage, which featured an homage to the over-the-top parody of the crime dramas so popular in the 1970s. Now, you can collect the action figures of these characters to display on your shelf. 2b1af7f3a8
