I can’t believe it has been 25 years since Beastie Boys came out with License To Ill. This was a staple album in my junior high days (oh my!). To launch their newest album, Beastie Boys made a 30 minute film. Way over the top, it has appearances by the likes of Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Susan Sarandon, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, John C. Reilly, Chloe Sevigney, Martin Starr and basically the who’s who of Hollywood. The premise is basically what happens right after the 1986 video, the crazy antics, and what then boils down to a dance off between the past and future selves of The Beasties. What? That may sound strange, just watch the entire film below.
The LA premiere was on Monday put on by our friends Jonathan and Meg of Flux at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood…. like most of their events, the creators were there in the theater… that’s right, the Beastie Boys were in the house!
