BEASTIE BOYS' SABOTAGE VID DONE BY KATO KIDS!
How am I just seeing this now? A remake of the Beastie's Sabotage video done by kids in Kato? This has been on YouTube for a decade, and today it has won the internet. In many ways it reminds me of the shot-for-shot remake of Raiders Of The Lost Ark that some high school kids did in the eighties.
Sabotage is from my favorite period of the Beastie Boys' career, and the video that Spike Jonze did for it successfully rode the lines between parody, nostalgia, and homage. For the sake of comparison, I'm posting the original video followed by the Kato remake. Keep your eyes open for some local landmarks that are no longer around! What do you think?
