Goofs

The three future Beastie Boys arrive in a 1981 Delorean DMC-12. The Delorean is a two-seater car and therefore the only way to (uncomfortably) transport three people is for the third to sit on the passenger's lap, but we can see as the camera pans past the car that there is only one person in each of the two seats.

A funny, nostalgic short for Beastie boy fans
13 December 2011 | by oyahuascaSee all my reviews

I guess for someone who is not familiar with the band, this short might seem thuggish, corny and obnoxious; but for others who can relate to the band it is a hidden gem. Beastie boys and all the "extras" in this short is played by celebrities so it's fun to recognize who is who during the viewing. This video is very satirical and should not be taken seriously, it is just a reminder of the 80's era and the hip hop movement that really spun off during that time. A real blast from the past ;)

I thought this short was hilarious and really well put together. I think the fans will definitely enjoy it.
