Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
The Adam Yauch-directed short film Fight For Your Right Revisited, a cameo-packed 20-plus minute sequel (of sorts) to the Beastie Boys’ 1986 hit video “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party),” sneaked into this year’s Sundance showcase. It is now online, and it is awesome.
The video pretty much features everything. Just straight-up everything. New Beastie Boys music, Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Susan Sarandon, Will Arnett, acid tripping, nitrous inhaling, a dance-off, vandalism, petty theft, a DeLorean (used appropriately), a conversation involving pies and sledgehammers, and public urination. I’m not going to give you any more spoilers than that. Just watch.
There’s an important lesson to be learned here: no matter what year it is, six dudes pissing on each other in the middle of the street are going to be arrested.
