Beastie Boys’ “Girls” Becomes Self-Empowerment Anthem In New Toy Commercial

A commercial for a new line of toys aimed at girls who want more than just dolls to play with uses a classic Beastie Boys song as its soundtrack.

The song, “Girls,” is off the group’s 1986 debut, Licensed To Ill. Its original message was pretty straightforward: The Beastie Boys liked girls, and they wanted to date them, among other things. In the commercial, the song becomes an anthem for self-empowerment and is sung by girls, rather than the group. It also shows a crazy Rube Goldberg machine.
