Beastie Boys "Sabotage" Video Gets Big Bird Treatment

As many of you are all aware, the internet is full of great number of silly things. What I have in store for you all today is certainly no exception. A fan of the Beastie Boys who goes by the alias Mylo the Cat has created a tribute to their music video for the classic hit Sabotage by giving it a shot for shot remake featuring beloved Sesame Street character Big Bird.

The footage is taken from the 1985 film Follow That Bird in order to redo the Spike Jonze directed classic. Big Bird is being looked for by a social worker as well as all the rest of his Sesame Street pals after having been kidnapped and taken all over the country. It seems there was all of the right footage from the film to piece together a remake of the Sabotage video.

Quite frankly, I think it's awesome. I've never been that huge into the Beastie Boys myself, save a few songs but I think it's really something else when someone can get this creative and make something that is not only amusing, but actually in some ways impressive. Mylo has also done muppet mash-ups of Beastie Boys’ So What’cha Want along with Warren G.’s Regulate and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony‘s Tha Crossroads.
