"Sweepy has been a part of the breakdance scene for many years as a member of the Rock Steady Crew. In 1998, he took his robotic movements to the next level, playing the role of the Intergalactic Robot in the Beastie Boys "Intergalactic" video.
"Inside of the robot suit, Sweepy faced off against the Dread-lock-topus, who was played by Joey Garfield. The two of them fought the grudge match of the century, with Sweepy coming out the victor. The fight can't really be appreciated until it is watched in its full glory on the Beastie Boys Video Anthology DVD. If you select the "The Robot vs. the Octopus Monster Saga" from the additional material menu, you can see the blow-by-blow killing procedure.
