Beastie Boys: Sabotage

Friday, 28th January 1994


Spike Jonze
Director


Dead-on parody/homage of 1970s cop shows, and one of the most iconic videos of the MTV era, it had to be shown in a cut version (apparently obvious dummies being thrown off a bridge was an imitatable act). This sort of illustrates that MTV was run by morons, even before they proved it with an endless stream of worthless reality shows.

it also lost the 1994 Video of the Year, to Aerosmith's lame video for "Cryin'", of all things - which sort of illustrates that maybe MTV's management was catering to the stupidity of their core audience.

Anyway, great video. :P
