During a promotional stop in NYC last week for his upcoming documentary Gunnin’ for that #1 Spot, Beastie Boy-turned film director Adam Yauch revealed that he and fellow band members “AdRock” and Mike D. wore fake mustaches in the 1994 video for their song “Sabotage.” The news came as quite a shock to the site, who for years had thought the mustaches worn by the trio of Beastie Boys were at the very least, somewhat real. “They were fake,” Yauch said as he read through the pages of The Book of ‘Bert’ during the press day.
With those words, Yauch went on to say “there are a lot of good ones,” when asked to describe his best mustache ever. It’s uncertain whether Yauch will grow real facial hair. When asked, he questioned why this reporter shaved his off.
