Move over ugly sweaters and posed photography — this year’s holiday cards are getting an Intergalactic twist.
Angela Young and her children changed it up this time for their annual themed holiday card. Taking to the streets of Toronto, the trio recreated one of Young’s all-time favourite music videos, the Beastie Boys’ late 1990s hit, Intergalactic, as an addition to this year’s family card.
Sporting matching hard-hats and fluorescent work vests, the group took their wicked dance moves to some of Toronto’s most iconic locations, including Yonge and Dundas Square, the PATH and Union Station. Even through an early-November snowstorm, Young and her kids battled out the cold to create an authentic Beastie Boys rendition, right down to the same fisheye lens effect.
“I’ve loved this Beastie Boys music video since I was a kid, so running around the streets of Toronto, the underground PATH and the TTC shooting this with my little humans was surreal but also a dream come true,” wrote Young in a Reddit post where the video surfaced.
For reference, here’s the original Beastie Boys version:
