Another tribute to MCA has surfaced, but not in the way of outdoor memorials. As it turns out, the Swedish Chef, Animal, and Beeker were altogether big fans of the Beastie Boys. Witness their proper Muppet homage to the Boys by lip syncing the iconic “So What’cha Want.” In ribbed turtleneck sweaters.

It’s a clever splice job, assembled by the internet’s “Mylo the Cat.” The original video was actually the Muppets doing a singing bit to “Danny Boy” for St. Patrick’s Day. This version is obviously better. It’s also worth mentioning that the shamrock background isn’t too far off from the Beasties original video. Well played, Cat.
It’s under a minute, so it’s not tiresome, and Beeker stepping up at the 0:52 mark is laugh out loud funny.
