Watch the Beastie Boys’ New Video for ‘Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win,’ Directed by Spike Jonze

The Beastie Boys’ new music video for ‘Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win,’ the group’s single with Santigold, reunites the group director Spike Jonze (the man behind the lens of their acclaimed ‘Sabotage’ video) and features the Boys as action figures in stop-motion animation.

In the short, written by Adam “MCA” Yauch, the action figure Beasties — looking very much like three clean-shaven G.I. Joes — have to flee their outdoor concert after a sniper team opens fire and encounter an explosion, zombies, a shark attack and other perils.

There are two versions of the subtitled video: the full-length one is more than 11 minutes long and includes dramatic moments of silence and music cutaways; while the episodic edition is a shade less than four minutes and sticks with the original song.
