Beastie Boys join forces with Spike Jonze for ‘Don’t Play No Game I Can’t Win’ video

Rap veterans become action figures on Santigold collaboration

Beastie Boys have teamed up with Spike Jonze on the video for their Santigold collaboration ‘Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win’.

The band announced via their official website Beastieboys.com their plans to team up with the director who previously worked on their 1998 clip for ‘Root Down Version 2’ and 1994 video ‘Sabotage’.

The rap veterans posted a picture from the video on their site – which you can see above – and the following statement: “Coming your way this July. Both short and epic length videos for the song we made with Santigold.


“The video was directed by our esteemed colleague Mr Spike Jonze. It is an explicit action adventure spectacular. It features action figures of us and yes, they are ACTION figures, NOT dolls!”

No official release date has yet been set for the video of their next single, which is lifted from their recent album ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part 2’.

Jonze recently teamed up with Arcade Fire for the short film ‘Scenes From The Suburbs’, which features on the new deluxe version of the band’s last album ‘The Suburbs’.
