It's weird that the Beastie Boys are now this Political fighting entity, going in twenty years from "Fight For Your Right to Party" to "Free Tibet."
I think that when they first met the Dalai Lama, he was thrilled that they wanted to help him:
Beastie Boys: Yo, Dalai Lama, we're here to free Tibet.
Dalai Lama: Who are you?
BB: We're the Beastie Boys.
DL: Ok. Who are you?
BB: And we're here to throw the full power of the Beastie Boys behind your Free Tibet movement.
DL: Uh, yeah. You know, we really don't need any -
BB: No serioussly, one word from us and we can have an entire army of thirty year-old frat boys in backwards baseball hats marching -
DL: Look, I'd love to talk but I -
BB: And stupid East Village hipsters. The Chinese government won't know what hit 'em!
DL: Look, I'd hate to trouble you, so -
BB: Trust me, we can mobilize over three hundred pot-smoking college kids at our command. Believe me, you'll be seeing Tibetan tattoos in no time!
DL: Aye Carumba!
HE MUGS TO THE CAMERA, PUTS HIS HANDS ON HIS CHEEKS LIKE MACAULEY CULKIN, WHILE "SHAVE AND A HAIRCUT" PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND
