Kids reenacting Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ video is best thing you’ll see all day

Adam Yauch died a week and a half ago. But the tributes to the late MCA of the Beastie Boys, who died May 4 of cancer at the age of 47, continue.

The latest, and arguably the cutest, salute to the late Yauch comes via a recreation of the Boys’ classic “Sabotage” video, as performed by a bunch of young children and directed by Portland filmmaker James Winters.

Yes, the kids wear funny mustaches, leap over fences and give themselves ridiculous cop show names just like MCA, Ad-Rock and Mike D did in the original. But they also do something better: participate in a heated game of Connect Four.

Watch the James Winters version, followed by the Spike Jonze-directed version, below and revel in their genius. (Thanks to Best Week Ever for bringing this gem to our attention.)
