Body Snatchers


Wouldn't you like to be body-snatched by the Beastie Boys?

This advertisement, which aired on MTV to promote the 1987 Daytona Beach Spring Break Body Snatchers Contest, was presumably filmed in New York. Once the winner of the contest was located and "snatched" by the Beastie Boys, he/she and a friend would be flown to Daytona Beach, Florida, for MTV’s Spring Break 1987 Weekend. In addition to the trip and cash to spend while in Daytona, the winner also was given a walk-on appearance in the movie Revenge of the Nerds II.

I'm not sure I'd want to be kidnapped by the Beastie Boys, but I wouldn't mind Adrock climbing in through my bedroom window. ;)

@the (nice name, btw): If Midzi doesn't have the video, I think I may have it. We'll look into uploading it in the near future.
