The video for “Make Some Noise,” the first single from the Beastie Boys‘ long-awaited new album Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2, may be the most star-studded music video of all time. The clip, which features Seth Rogen, Danny McBride and Elijah Wood as young versions of the trio, overflows with cameos by well-known actors including Will Ferrell, Jack Black, John C. Reilly, Ted Danson, Rashida Jones, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, Mary Steenburgen, Jason Schwartzman, Rainn Wilson, Steve Buscemi, Chloe Sevigny, Maya Rudolph, Malin Akerman and Orlando Bloom – just to name a few.
The guest stars are fun, but the charm of the video lies in how well it captures the Beastie Boys’ distinct style and wit. Elijah Wood’s performance in particular is amazing – he truly embodies the goofy energy of the young Ad-Rock.
