Campaigning rapper Adam Yauch is overjoyed acclaimed weight-gain documentary SUPERSIZE ME proved to be an international hit, but fears it will not alter people's eating habits.

The BEASTIE BOY enjoyed director Morgan Spurlock's movie, in which the film-maker guzzles McDONALD'S fast food for a month and has to deal with a resulting string of health problems.

But Yauch is convinced the public will continue to ignore the dangers of over-consuming takeaway food.

He says, "Will the movie put paid to McDonald's? Hell no. Have people stopped smoking cigarettes because they know cigarettes are bad? Of course they haven't. People still continue to do that. And people will continue to eat at McDonald's."
