This week on The Continuingly Ill Adventures of the Beastie Boys, we find the Beastie Boys once again battling evil forces and rocking out, this time with Santigold on the track "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win". If you think this is going to look like the group's past action-filled videos, expect a twist. Directed by Spike Jonze, the video takes you into the dangerously dark world of... action figures?
Like a GI Joe live-action episode, with Santigold's Barbie doll look and sexy voice throughout, the gang of MCA, Ad-Rock, and Mike D are being pursued by the evil "Anti-Beastie Boy" organization. After escaping from their live show, the boys battle their adversaries in the snow covered mountains amidst heavy gunfire and multiple explosions. It looks like another win for the Beastie Boys... That is until their enemies come back from the dead as zombies, leaving the boys frozen in their tracks.
The abbreviated version ends there, with an abrupt "To Be Continued", but that's not how we roll. Check out the full film version below and see the group all dolled up in various locales, like high in the sky in a yeti-controlled 'copter and under the sea in a yellow submersible.
