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?
