Today brought one of the best work perks in my entire time at EMI – an office advance screening of the new Beastie Boys film Fight For Your Right, Revisited.
The half hour film (featuring every screen star ever) was made to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Beasties’ classic album Licence to Ill and picks up where the vid for their massive 1986 hit, (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!) video leaves off.
Directed and written by the Beasties own Adam Yauch and starring Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Jack Black, (a surprisingly non-irritating) Will Ferrell, and John C. Riley, it delivers BIG TIME. Add to the list Will Arnett, Ted Danson, Steve Buscemi, Susan Sarandon, Orlando Bloom, and SO many more I can’t even attempt to list, packed into a funny, rude and ultimately very wrong long music video…
