In the Beastie Boys 1992 music video for the song “Gratitude” MCA, Ad-Rock and Mike D pay homage to the classic film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. In addition to being filmed outdoors and copying its directorial style of slow horizontal tracking shots, the video also shows the back of the Beastie Boys amplifiers which are spray-painted in stencil “PINK FLOYD LONDON” just like Live at Pompeii.
