Parts of Spike Jonze's video for "Sure Shot" by the Beastie Boys were filmed among the igloo-like domes of Dome Village in downtown Los Angeles.

Dome Village was founded in 1993 to provide non-traditional housing for homeless people. The fiberglass geodesic domes were designed by Craig Chamberlain, a former student of Buckminster Fuller. Each unit cost $10,000 and could house up to 34 tenants. The residents were evicted and the domes auctioned off in 2006 when the property owner raised the rent on the land where the domes were set up.

I think Dishwalla filmed their 1996 video for "Counting Blue Cars" here too in case you care. Remember Dishwalla? Yeah, me neither.
