Beastie Boys bandmates Ad-Rock and Mike D are among the stars in Yoko Ono’s video for her new single Bad Dancer.

The rappers, who collaborated with Yoko Ono’s Plastic Ono Band on the song, join Questlove, Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier and soul singer Roberta Flack, among others in the quirky promo, directed by Ben Dickinson.

Ono tells Rolling Stone, “These are creative people and they have unique movements. They don’t move like other people do.”
