The Beastie Boys Performance You Never Saw On "Chapelle's Show"

This performance was supposed to be shown during Season Three of Chapelle's Show. But there was no third season of the amazing Chapelle's Show because Dave Chapelle realized he didn't want to be a celebrity anymore and bravely cut the chord on fame. The show's Co-Creator, Neil Brennan, in tribute to the late Adam Yauch who passed last Friday, uploaded this 2004 performance on New York's East River to Youtube. It has been taken down a few times by Viacom so apologies if it's not here. If it is, enjoy. It looks like all involved did. That's what made the Beastie Boys great. Taking great Joy in what they were doing and passing it on through their work. It's hard to actually call it "work" because they made it look so easy and fun.
Travel well MCA...

P.S. Excellent use of Public Transportation for dramatic effect.
