The Beastie Boys video have certainly brought out the big guns for their new 30-minute video for their new single “Make Some Noise” – also known as “Fight for Your Right – Revisited,” promoting their upcoming album “Hot Sauce Committee Part Two,” due out May 3. They've also edited it down into a regular video featuring just the single.
The video, directed by Beastie Adam Yauch, will tell the tale of Beastie Boys “past, present and future.” At some point, these groups battle in a “super-fresh, old-school throwdown dance contest from the future.”
Group One features “future Beasties” Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Jack Black, while Group Two (who star in the shorter "Make Some Noice" clip) has Elijah Wood, Seth Rogen and Danny McBride as the “Beasties past.” There's plenty of other cameos – including Susan Sarandon, Will Arnett, Stanley Tucci, Ted Danson and Chole Sevigny – and the massive rollout for the video included much of the Viacom spectrum, from MTV to Comedy Central to Spike.
Apparently, the Beasties haven't been idle during Yauch's recovery from cancer, which was diagnosed in 2009 and led to the delay of “Hot Sauce Committee,” which had already been completed. Now, the Beasties – and their famous friends – all appear ready to “Kick it!” once again.
