Beastie Boys Team With Spike Jones For New Action-Figure Video

The team who brought you the 'Sabotage' video are out to top themselves with this one…

Back at their old antics, 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," and by the looks of it, this one's gonna be fun.

The band announced via their official website Beastieboys.com that they've teamed up with the director, who previously worked on their 1998 vid "Root Down Version 2" and, of course, the iconic and mustachio'd 1994 video for "Sabotage".

The cancer-conquering New York rappers posted a picture from the video on their site (above) along with 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 from their fantastic recent album Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 (check out our review), which is currently in the running for album of the year here at CraveOnline.

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.
