The influence of Beastie BoysAdam Yauch is still coming to light weeks after his untimely death. The latest comes courtesy of French electro rockers M83‘s new video, “Reunion”, off their impressive 2011 release Hurry Up We’re Dreaming. Directed by Fleur & Manu and produced by DIVISION, the clip continues the story begun in the group’s last video “Midnight City”, which saw a bunch of telekinetic Children of the Corn levitating and crushing heavy objects Chronicle-style. Though not the most obvious setting for a memorial, around the 0:43 mark, the camera pans to a GPS device flashing directions to “Adam Yauch Ave” from “Intergalatic St”, and then to “Sabotage St”. It’s a touching little Easter egg that heightens the already epic clip.
