The Beasties are really growing fond of shooting these mini-movies in support of Hot Sauce…Pt. 2, and who could really be mad at that? In an era where television and music videos are as mismatched as Coke® and vodka, the legendary trio could have simply Flip-camera’ed their way onto YouTube and wrestled out plenty of views off of namesake alone.
On that note, Ad-Rock, MCA, Mike D.–and Santigold give Robot Chicken a run for its money with a toy figure skit that jumps the shark (and features one), much to the viewer’s delight. Think True Lies meets Shaun of the Dead. Ever the articulate filmmaker, Spike Jonze commands quite the black comedy as his slapstick puppets fulfil his vision down to the lifeless facial expressions.
Don’t snooze on the score supporting the screenplay, though. Hot Sauce Committee Part Two still conjures up an essential Hip-Hop vibe which each replay of its continually ill saga.
