"Does Liquid Courage Exist?" is the central question of the new ¡Mayday! music video for a freestyle over the Beastie Boys' "Make Some Noise." The Miami hip-hop staples hit legendary Little Haiti punk haunt Churchill's Pub to get a satisfactory answer.
The clip itself is a gorgeous way to visit this dive without dealing with the safety of your vehicle, and none of the memorable odors coming from the men's bathroom. In some rich black and white footage shot by Jacob Rivera and Garcia, we see Churchill's in a whole new light. The pool table is like 50 feet long in one shot!
There's a ton of fisticuffs going on up at the bar, in the gaming area, in the bathroom for this shoot, and you can bet those punches look like they hurt!

The ¡Mayday! dudes assert that "No livers were hurt in the making of this video," but they never say that jawbones weren't bruised the day after. Great excuse to revisit the Beastie Boys' cameo-rich video for the original.
