In this video four men dressed like Tibetan monks, performed this killer breakdance in Union Square in New York city to celebrate the second annual MCA day, honoring Beastie Boy’s Adam Yauch’s untimely death.
This dance was choreographed by New York advertising firm KNARF for promoting MCA day. Beastie Boys fan found a creative way to honor one of his music idols Adam Yauch in a unique viral video. Yauch wasn’t just an iconic rapper also he was a devoted Buddhist who dedicated much of his life to the cause of Tibetan liberation.
Frank Anselmo, director of the KNARF New York, feeling proud to pay homage to the Beastie Boys, which he started listening to at age 11 and has been a lifelong fan. He said he has met the other two members of the group, Mike D and met Ad-Rock, but he never got the chance to meet MCA. He said being part of the promotion and being able to design the MCA Day logo helped fill that void for him.
“They’re a New York band and I grew up with them,” he said. “There are not a lot of bands you can grow with. My whole life I’ve had their music. It’s part of my DNA.”
