This dad from Portland, James Winter, bought shades and staches for his kids and nephew and remade the Beasties’ “Sabotage” music video as a sort of tribute to the late Adam Yauch. It’s quite a riot. The kids look like they’re having fun, and not being exploited for their cute factor.

Meet Safiyya Bryce, aka Funafuji, a little lass with an English accent who is doing big things. Things that make us sweat and smile.
