Sick Vids Brah 2011 #01: Beastie Boys featuring Santigold “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win”

So we made a mistake once again... This is not the best video of 2011, although it kicks serious ass. Similarly, "Make Some Noise" (a.k.a. "Fight For Your Right Revisited") is not the worst of 2011, but this post wouldn't be complete if we didn't mention the tedium we experienced watching the 30-minute version earlier this year.

With this in mind, we were initially going to start this post by stating "It's not often the same group premieres both the best video of the year and the worst video of the year, but somehow that's what happened." Except neither statement is true.

So here's the truth: "Make Some Noise" is essentially one of those SNL sketches that people who still watch SNL masturbate to. Celeb cameos makes their giney tickle, so whenever there's a shit-ton of celeb cameos, it's like preparing for the orgasm of a lifetime.

"Make Some Noise" had the adverse effect on us. It made us sick, while "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" is like the antithesis of "Make Some Noise," exuding endless creativity and expert film-making aspects that we should expect from Spike Jonze, who started hinting at this return to music videos last year with his video for The Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs." We're seriously hoping this happens. We would love nothing more than for Spike to return to music videos. The world needs this kind of excitement right now...
