The Beastie Boys are reviving the art of the must-see music video. After releasing their epic, star-studded "Make Some Noise," from their latest album, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, the New York rap trio are back with a clip for "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" and, as promised, it's an "explicit action adventure spectacular." Well, sort of. Watch below (via Funny or Die).

With a "screenplay" by Adam Yauch and direction by the Boys' longtime collaborator Spike Jonze, The Continuingly Ill Adventures of the Beastie Boys stars action figure versions of MCA, Mike D, and Ad-Rock, as well as Santigold (who does guest vocals on the track). And the resulting piece is an awesome parody of everything from G.I. Joe to The A-Team. The basic plot: the Beasties are assailed at a performance by a military strike command before a "gripping" chase ensues through the snow. Sure, the plot may be ridiculous, but Jonze is serious with his keen eye for the littlest details: dig the dead-on replicas of the Beasties' Orange amplifiers and Santi's brass knuckles. Ace.
