Watch ‘Buddhist Monks’ Breakdance To The Beastie Boys’ ‘Ch-Check It Out’ For MCA Day

MCA Day has become an annual celebration of the life of Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch, who passed away on May 4, 2012 after his battle with salivary gland cancer. On Saturday, fans gathered at the Littlefield Performance and Art Space in Brooklyn to pay respect and show their eternal admiration for the beloved rapper, but people were treated to a little extra excitement this time around. Four men, dressed as Buddhist monks, performed to the Beastie Boys’ hit “Ch-Check it Out,” and it’s safe to say that everyone was impressed.

Directed by Leo Zanis, “Buddhist Monks” is a breakdancing tribute that features Bobby Selby, Jaehyuk Choi, Christopher Groelle and Stephen Cho, with creative direction by Frank Anselmo, and it’s pretty much the raddest thing that you’ll watch today.
