Hands Down, the best Music Video till the end of time.
3 January 2001 | by (California) – See all my reviews

What can be said. To see is to believe. Without viewing this modern day masterpiece of short-subject film making, it is hard to describe the energy and invocation of sheer hilarity that this video portrays.

A straight up, in-your-face farce on the 1970's cop sitcoms, rockets its way through your TV with the electrifying Beastie Boys hamming it up on the screen and rocking out on the soundtrack.

Socking it to the man as they tounge and cheek their comedy chompers around a nice fat donut, the Beasties "Starsky and Hutch"-it so hard you'll want to apply a fake mustache and bust some heads.

Likewise, Spike Jonez (director of critically acclaimed "Being John Malkovich") stupifies us with his stunning camera work, blending mood altering hand-held mastery with kung-fu action shots that contain such artistry it should be illegal. To say Jonez's style mixed with the Beastie Boys' lyrical stylings is the understatement of the century. Simply put, Sabotage is the pinnacle of Music in Motion.
