Spike Jonze has directed this all-action (man) video for new Beastie Boys track Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win, which also features Santigold. Shown above is the 11-minute director's cut.

Jonze is of course the director behind a number of classic Beastie Boys videos, including Sabotage, shown below.

damn cool title sequence with the rolling Beastie Boys logo - shame the tunes gash, but ace video

you can always rely on jonze for interesting music videos.
It might be worth posting the extended version of the video which runs to about 11 minutes and really expands on the concept.

also, @stu, i'd have to disagree about the tune being gash! It's a great track from an album that could be counted among the classic beastie's albums.

@ Matt
Thanks for that - I hadn't seen the longer version. Have put that one on the post now, as the shorter one's been removed.

Another fantastic work of art from Spike Jonze - he never disappoints.
