The Beastie Boys Get Back In Time In The Star-Packed “Make Some Noise” Video


The Beastie Boys’ video for their throwbacky new single “Make Some Noise”–off Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2, which comes out May 3–picks up right as the rager chronicled in the “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)” video is letting out, with Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, and Elijah Wood playing the roles of the Boys as they stumble hung over around a soundstage approximation of old New York, throwing a garbage can through a window (a la Do The Right Thing?) and irritating everyone whose path they cross. Chloë Sevigny’s turn as an irritable lost member of Vixen is pretty astounding; there is also a Will Ferrell cameo in which he plays cowbell, because, get it??? Clip after the jump.

McBride’s presence in the video makes it seem more like a fantasy sequence from Eastbound & Down than it probably should, although this clip is actually a part of the Adam Yauch-directed 30-minute short film Fight For Your Right Revisited, which is up illicitly at various places around the Internet while people wait for MTV’s various networks to rerun it so they can fire up their DVRs.
