A Battlestar Galactica and Beastie Boys fan created a tribute to both in “Galactica: Sabotage,” a nearly shot-for-shot replication of the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” music video with clips from BSG.

We’d describe our attitude towards the geekdom-meets-hip-hop conceit as “guarded”: not that it isn’t a great idea, but we’ve been burned by it too many times before. But this is truly well done — and the Beastie Boys are huge geeks anyway. Bonus points to the mashup creator for choosing “Sabotage” as the mashup song over “Intergalactic,” because come on, that would’ve been hokey.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the mashup with the original, via YouTube Doubler. (h/t Nick Douglas)
