Yoko Ono's newest video for her track "Bad Dancer" is what all music videos should aspire to be: part funky-fresh music, part all-star dance-party, part totally WTF-worthy. It's essentially what would happen if a bunch of kickass musicians got together for a high school art project.

This clip from the forthcoming Hot Sauce Committee is hilarious! When I heard there was a new Beastie's video, I thought "it would be cool if they had actors playing them, like that Jon Spencer video way back in the day," and guess what? That's exactly what they did, starring Will Farrell, Jack Black, Elijah Wood (doing a spot on Ad-Rock!), John C. Reilly (Come to think of it, John C.
