Saturday was the third annual MCA Day in New York City, a day of remembrance for the most enlightened Beastie Boy, Adam Yauch, who succumbed to a three-year battle with cancer on May 4, 2012, at the age of 47. A group of Tibetan monks decided to honor Yauch, who over the last couple decades may have done more than any other celebrity to put Tibet’s liberation struggle into the consciousness of twentysomethings, by breakdancing in Union Square. They look pretty good to me.

The track is “Ch-Check It Out” off of the Beasties’ 2004 album To the 5 Boroughs.

Here’s a video taken by a spectator, which is unfortunately in portrait mode (booo):
