Ask Spike Jonze and Beastie Boys’ Mike D and Ad-Rock Anything

The filmmaker and his Beastie Boys Story subjects will be doing an AMA tomorrow night on Reddit after the film premieres.

Tomorrow night, Apple TV is finally unveiling Spike Jonze’s live documentary film about the Beastie Boys, titled Beastie Boys Story. The flick promises an intimate account of the band’s forty years together, and was initially set to premiere earlier this month on the heels of Ill Communication’s twenty-sixth anniversary—their number one charting 1994 album. Jonze himself directed the music video for that album’s hit single “Sabotage” over twenty-five years ago. 

But it gets better! After the film debuts (time to finally commit to that Apple TV+ subscription), Spike and Beasties Mike D and Ad-Rock are taking to Reddit to field questions in a good old fashioned AMA, launching at 8 p.m. PST shortly after the film’s 5 p.m. premiere. You can follow the action—and get involved in the convo—at /r/HipHopHeads.
