Librarians Sabotage Beastie Boys

This has been making the rounds of the internet lately, so you may have already glimpsed it, but it's such a work of staggering genius that it bears re-posting here. Two librarians have remade the classic Beastie Boys video for "Sabotage," now set in a library. Since the original video was already a 90s pastiche of 70s crime shows, we now after another two decades have a brilliant spoof of a spoof on our hands. Pomo at it's best ladies and gents. Video can be viewed here (and it's worth watching to the end for the moment where the criminal--a book thief, naturally--is taken down by a thrown hardcover). And I include a few shots from the original paired with these fine women's work, so you can see just how dang right they got it.
