Beastie Boys: Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win

Dolls and violence.

Published on Jul 19, 2011

Editor's Pick

An 11-minute short directed by Spike Jonze has the Beastie Boys and featured artist Santigold battling it out as G.I. Joe-style action figures. Off the Boys' new album, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, the video is replete with zombies, Yetis and sharks. The song itself, Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win is almost an afterthought to the short and tends to weave in and out amongst all the action.

The video ends with the assurance that no Yetis were harmed during its making. Just in case you were worried.
