Two years after the untimely death of Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch AKA MCA, the spirit of his music lives on in pop culture and especially on May 3rd, dubbed MCA Day.
Saturday marked the 3rd annual MCA Day in honor of the late Yauch, and festivities were held at Littlefield Performance and Art Space in his hometown of Brooklyn. But some Buddhist monks (or, most likely, men dressed as Buddhist monks) created their own tribute to MCA with extremely impressive breakdancing set to the Boy’s music in Manhattan’s Union Square.
Ch-check it out.
Yauch was a devout Buddhist, and was extremely dedicated to the fight for Tibetan independence, so this tribute isn’t totally out of left field. Whether or not these are actual monks, it’s still hilarious to see people of the cloth get jiggy. (Like the nun on Italy’s ‘The Voice.’)Gothamist]
