The controversial media giant may have had its humble beginnings in Montreal, but anyone who's familiar with VICE knows that Brooklyn was the only place the mag could have properly celebrated its 20th birthday on Friday. And a Brooklyn party it was—filled with beards, bands, and plenty of booze. Hundreds of VICE-lovin' partygoers waited in the rain at the gates of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, hoping to make it into the party before the musical supergroups of the night took to the stage. Plenty were lucky enough to get to the Duggal Greenhouse early, with plenty of time to peruse the variety of food trucks parked outside the venue before heading in and hitting one of the many open bars. The crowd tightened up, of course, when Andrew W.K. started the party with his hit "Party Hard," and became the official "unofficial" MC of the night, introducing everyone from Chromeo and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Ghostface Killah and the Black Lips onto the stage. The two most memorable performers, however, were the surprise celebrity guests, Jonah Hill and Scarlett Johansson, who sang sultry (yes, sultry) renditions of Drake and New Order songs, respectively. (Jonah Hill also faux-pleaded with Drake to be his friend, so let's wait and see how that turns out.)

The look on the aforementioned loved ones' faces when you give them something special is certainly an example of that "good cheer," right?
