The REAL men of Sabotage?

The video for Sabotage by the Beastie Boys is my favorite music video of all times. With the simplicity of art direction, amateur action scenes, retro-moustaches, pompous wigs and one huge sense of self-humor, director Spike Jonze and the Beasties have managed to create together a classic lo-fi masterpiece.

Up until this moment, that is...

"Who are the real men of Sabotage?", a question was once thrown into the open air (you better watch the Beastie Boys Anthology DVD for the complete Ciao L.A interview). This question has more than one answer, as we can all see in this video I've caught on YouTube.com. They sound, they look, they act, they drive like true men of sabotage, so - I'm totally confused now...

My vote for Video of the Year goes out to all you retro-cops & crooks out there!
