Spike Jonze and Beastie Boys, Together Again

Being John Malkovich director and longtime Beastie Boys collaborator Spike Jonze has directed yet another music video for the band: A high-concept sci-fi extravaganza that features zombies, GI Joe action figures, and, as usual, a soundtrack with a pretty decent hook.

The song is called “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win,” and the version we’ve posted above is the 11-minute director’s cut.  You can watch a shorter version here, but why would you ever want to?
