It’s the 25th anniversary of Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing film, and Beats Music is celebrating with a short documentary on YouTube. The 23-minute video was published this week, featuring Lee and several cast and crew members revisiting the location of the original shoot, before a Beats-branded concert featuring Public Enemy, Mos Def and comedian Dave Chapelle. Viewers of the YouTube film are being encouraged to “Shazam to stream ‘Fight the Power’ on Beats Music”, providing a direct link back to the streaming service. It’s not the first YouTube documentary of its kind, though: last year Google produced a five-part YouTube doc about The Clash – Audio Ammunition – to promote the release of five remastered albums on its Google Play service (Bulletin, 10-Sep-13).
