The Beastie Boys still prove to be the best rapping trio alive even after their height in fame has simmered down. It’s always been cool to like The Beastie Boys, and now it’s equally awesome to remake their greatest hits. A few killer librarians have taken the hit “Sabotage” and made their own version for the librarians of the world. These new Beastie Boys aren’t like the librarians you may know of; they have some serious attitude!
The librarians are seen chasing down a character who is committing various acts of sabotage in their place of work. Including freeze frame, the members are introduced throughout the whole remake of The Beastie Boys’ video “Sabotage”.
The members of this Beastie Boys librarian staff are made up of Sir Martin Morgan, Anne Duncan as Story Time, Cathy Donnelly as The Techie, Stephanie McMurray as Late Fee, Margaret Threet as Dewey, and Branka Steinbaugh as Book Worm. They’re all adorable and more killer than the next.
During the video the staff are on the hunt for criminals violating the rules of the library, which include talking too loud, forgetting to return borrowed items, and spilling open books on the floor. No job goes undone for the staff, as they are seen running around the building to catch the perpetrator in order ot bring them to justice.
Capturing The Beastie Boys’ rebel with a yell spirit, this video features the staff in suspenders, sunglasses, and donuts in hand, as cool enforcers of the library.
Much like this remake, the original “Sabotage” video showcased the boys in cop uniforms chasing a criminal, with almost identical cheeky wigs and facial hair as the librarians have used.
This isn’t the first time someone has remade a Beastie Boys video. Two years ago Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood and Danny McBride got together to portray Mike D, MCA, and Ad-Rock in their video for “Fight for Your Right (Revisited)”.
Let’s hope this new Beastie Boy video gets more people in the work place filming their own versions of “Sabotage”.
Watch the two tribute videos below.
