Work of Director Spike Jonze, The Easter Egg - All Four (Very Amusing) Easter Eggs

“The Work of Director Spike Jonze” is the first DVD installation of Palm Pictures’ newly created Directors Label series, and features a selection of Jonze’s music videos, short films, and documentaries. There are a total of 4 Easter Eggs on the dual-sided DVD, but they can only be accessed on a computer with a DVD-ROM drive – they CANNOT be accessed on a DVD player. So, if you have a DVD drive on your computer, pop this DVD in and follow these steps to access the eggs. Eggs #1-3 are on Side A of the DVD, while Egg #4 is on Side B.

Egg #1
1. When Side A’s menu loads, select “Commentaries and Info” [The “Commentaries & Info – Page 1 of 3” menu should appear]
2. Select “Sabotage / Beastie Boys” [This takes you to a menu for the video]
3. Put your mouse over the “Sabotage / Beastie Boys” menu header. You should see the row highlighted in white with an orange “1” next to the header. Click on it.
4. You’re treated to the stunt pulled by Beastie Boy Adam Yauch (as alter ego Nathaniel Hornblower) when Jonze lost to Jake Scott for Best Director at the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards. [3:31]

Egg #2
1. After you’re done viewing Egg #1, go back to the Commentary Menu [“Commentaries & Info – Page 1 of 3”]
2. Click on “More” [“Commentaries & Info – Page 2 of 3” should appear]
3. Put your mouse over the “Commentaries & Info – Page 2 of 3” menu header. You should see the row highlighted in black with an orange “2” next to the header. Click on it.
4. You’re treated to a 1995 Philadelphia TV news report about a bomb scare caused by a prop grenade used in the shoot for Ween’s “Freedom of ’76.” Best of all is the square police officer who refers to the group as “When.” [1:32]

Egg #3
1. After you’re done viewing Egg #2, stay on the same page, and select “Weapon of Choice / Fatboy Slim” [This takes you to a menu for the video]
2. Click on “Music video info” [This takes you to a credits list for the video]
3. Put your mouse over the “Weapon of Choice” header on the upper left of the screen. You should see the row highlighted in black with an orange “3” next to the header. Click on it.
4. You’re treated to the brief but hilarious clip played at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards when Jonze couldn’t be there in person to accept his Best Director award for the video. [0:24]

Egg #4
1. Remove the DVD, and flip the disc over to Side B. When Side B’s menu loads, select “Rarities” [The “Rarities” menu should appear]
2. Put your mouse over the “Rarities” menu header. You should see the row highlighted in white with an orange “4” next to the header. Click on it.
3. You’re treated to a short but funny clip of Jonze practicing his ventriloquism skills with friend and fellow director Michel Gondry. [0:17]

You do not need a computer to view this egg. I found all 4 usung a standalone dvd player. Very easy to find. From the pages mentioned, just go to the topmost item and press around on the direction keys. The Beastie Boys menu egg is up for example.
