A Bathing Ape and American hip hop trio Beastie Boys support the earthquake and tsunami victims of Japan by releasing a charity tee this season. Designed by the ever-multifaceted creative Mike Mills, the shirt features a sketched graphic of Ad-Rock, M.C.A. and Mike D. This joint venture with the lifestyle brand gives back the trio’s gratitude for the people of Japan, who have greatly supported them throughout the years. The shirts will be sold at BAPE stores starting November 5, 2011.
The trio from Beastie Boys are putting up limited sets of their own action figures, used in Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win music video, for sale. Produced by Bathing Ape, the fully jointed action figures will come in a tin container, white jump suits, safety goggles, vests, extra hand attachments and a 2-disc deluxe version of the Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science with an 88 page colour book. All proceeds go to the Pablove Foundation and Alex’s Lemonade Stand that aid children stricken with cancer. The Beastie Boys Collectible set is available for USD$750 at their online store
In a joyous moment for Beastie Boys and comedy fans alike, the release of this recent video “Fight For Your Right-Revisited” follows up on the super group’s initial track of the same name. The short video brings together a star-studded cast of comedians to each assume the role of the Beastie Boys of different eras as both sides agree to a general disdain of one another. The video is in anticipation of Beastie Boys’ upcoming 8th album titled HOT SAUCE COMMITTEE PART TWO. For more information check out the Beastie Boys’ official site.
They fought for their right to party in hilarious movies like Stepbrothers, Pineapple Express & School of Rock. And now Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Jack Blackand & Elijah Wood are teaming up to star in “Fight For Your Right Revisited,” a short film written and directed by Beastie Boy Adam “MCA” Yauch. The flick will premiere at Sundance in the spring. One film I can’t wait to see.
