Remix: 'All the President's Men' vs. the Beastie Boys' 'Sabotage'

"I can't stand it, I know you planned it, I'm gonna set it straight, this Watergate," begins the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage." All the President's Boys is one of those perfect remixes that works so well, you can't believe you didn't think of it first. 

"I can't stand it, I know you planned it, I'm gonna set it straight, this Watergate," begins the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage." All the President's Boys is one of those perfect remixes that works so well, you can't believe you didn't think of it first. Editor Jeff Yorkes "cinemashup" of footage from All the President's Men nails it.  

This isn't the first time the song has been paired with a 1970s Hollywood thriller vibe; Spike Jonze directed this music video for "Sabotage" in 1994.
