Apparently, in 1998, when the Beastie Boys’ album Hello Nasty was released, the boys did a half-hour “informercial” for the CD that aired on public access channels in several markets. Someone uploaded the show in three parts, and I’ve placed them below for your enjoyment.
The show is an amalgam of different infomercial and public access-style bits: a psychic, a man who promises you can make money by doing nothing, an exercise guru, and a juice machine. MCA, Ad Rock and Mike D appear throughout the videos, and I must say if they ever get sick of the music scene they wouldn’t have any trouble doing comedy. The fellas have natural comedic timing and instincts, which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise for anyone who has seen their videos.My favorite video is number three. There’s just something about using car polish to clean a banana that cracks me the heck up.
A commenter over at A Special Thing, where I found the videos, noted that the B-Boys would fit right in with Tim and Eric (Tom Goes to the Mayor; Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job), and I have to agree. They definitely seem to sample from the same comedic font. Someone should get these guys their own sketch comedy series. Adult Swim, I’m talking to you.
Wat’s Good Fam!
