Triple Trouble (Beastie Boys) Easter Egg - Hidden Closed Captions
- How to find the Egg -
In the Beastie Boys video "Triple Trouble" There is a part where the Beastie Boys go to sleep and the beat just plays on. If you turn on the closed captioning during this time, you will get some messages that are not said out loud in the video. These messages could have been put in by the band or someone else. I have seen these closed captions three times on VH1, but I never saw the video on MTV or on any other channel, so I cannot confirm weather it’s isolated to VH1 or not. I have attempted to reconstruct the messages as best as I could from the times I have seen them.
Trick or treating is fun
Especially if your a Sasquatch
He fancies himself a cowboy
(My VCR messed up a few closed captions here, I think something about the Sasquatch enjoys English muffins or something)
Loves walks on the beach
On the basketball court he thinks he is nasty
He'll slap your whack shot right out of the park
Do you love me?
I love you and I miss you.
What did you have for lunch?
Call me when you wake up.
Is this weird?
Ok, this is the part where mixy doesn’t know Where the band went.
Where did they go?
This video sucks.
- Justification for it being an egg –
I know that this egg is hidden and is entertaining. I also believe that it is personal because it seems like the band or some wise guy who put it in is making a live commentary as the video plays. This is evidenced by certain closed captions that describe what is happening in the video while it is happening. The most notable part of this commentary comes right at the very end, when the Beastie Boys' DJ (who has been spinning records throughout the video) finally turns around and realizes the band is gone. This happens right when the last three messages are displayed. That last message in particular, “This video sucks,” may be how the band or whoever hid these Closed Captions in the video actually feels about the video. This is why I believe that these messages contain that personal touch that justifies it being an eegg.
Thanks in advance for reading this far and considering this submission.
