Beastie Boys Go Plastic for Charity

It’s quite difficult to overstate the importance of the Beastie Boys in popular culture. 

In the land of musical acts that die after one bad album release, the Beastie Boys have been a cultural force for over 25 years and have commanded respect from nearly every genre in the music industry.

Now, following the release of the highly anticipated “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” video (directed by Spike Jonze), the Beastie Boys have released a special set of commemorative action figures. The figures, produced by NOWHERE LTD./A Bathing Ape, are a replication of the characters used in the video.

Each 11.5″ figure comes in a metal box, full of accessories and gear. Priced around $750USD, you might think that’s a bit expensive, but the B-Boys know what they’re doing.

 All the proceeds are split between the Pablove Foundation and Alex’s Lemonade Stand.

So, if you want your own mini B-Boy and want to help charity at the same time, I suggest you

And because I loved the video for “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” – especially since Santigold is featured on the track – here it is, for your viewing pleasure.
