Beastie Boys Go Viral in Commercial

Posted by - 12:40 PM on 11/21/13
The Beastie Boys had long held they wouldn't license their songs for TV commercials -- but it looks like they've made an exception. Check out the commercial for the Rube Goldberg toy the "Princess Machine" featuring The Beastie Boys song "Girls" in the replies.

I can see why they would, based on a gender equality basis. I liked the idea behind the song/product, but dammit that song annoyed me.

Yet the toys are still pink and purple. Don't get me wrong I appreciate what they are attempting to do, but it's up to parents to influence their children.

If it was about money, they would have licensed their tracks to major brands years ago. This company launched last year through Kickstarter....

Fuck off, the same can be said about you. The man had a little girl himself and it was also for a good cause.
