Comparison between the G-rated version and the uncensored Director's Cut.
In the music video for "Body Movin`" by the Beastie Boys, the three MCs from New York again sarirized a film genre. After the 70's action movies (Sabotage) and the Japanese monster movies (Intergalactic) they now make fun of James Bond movies. The secret agent from the music video has to steal a misterious recipe for a meatball-sauce, however, he apparently didn't think that its owner and the latter's servant would be that stubborn...
The version of the music video that was aired on TV is heavily censored. The Director's Cut is much harsher and additionally includes a caricatured splatter sequence.
The Criterion Collection DVD "Beastie Boys Video Anthology" includes both the censored and the uncensored version.
