Happy 20th anniversary to The Beastie Boy’s “Sabatoge.” Check out the Spike Jonze directed music video here.
in 1994 Adam Yauch was so confident that Spike Jonze would win the prize for best director at the MTV Music Video Awards that he dressed as Nathanial Hörnblowé (his alter ego) to praise Spike on stage, unfortunately for Yauch the prize went to the director of ”Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M. Still, that didn’t stop Yauch to take the microphone and express his discontent with the results.
”This is an outrage, because Spike is the director who has just? [sigh]. I’m from Switzerland. Let me just tell everyone that and since I was a small boy I had dreamed that Spike would win this. And now that this has happened, I want to tell everyone this is a farce, that I had all the ideas for Star Wars and everything.”
