When the Beastie Boys were on a boat and almost on Chappelle’s Show


[UPDATE: VIACOM IS A JERK] Well, this is amazing. Like every breathing person in Brooklyn, we spent the weekend mourning MCA’s death and blasting Paul’s Boutique so loud that none of our neighbors even complained cuz they were doing the same thing too. Today our grief hangover got treated to this long-lost pop culture treasure: a previously unreleased video of the Beastie Boys performing “The New Style” on a boat between the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges in the East River for the abandoned third season of Chappelle’s Show way back in 2004! Remember Chappelle’s Show? Dave even gets to let the beat drop himself. [via The Hairpin]
