Last week, a tweet went viral of the infamous 1983 crime film Scarface reenacted by children as part of a play. Although it had originally been performed in 2010, the video has resurfaced seven years later and has since received over 100,000 retweets and 150,000 likes on Twitter.

Although the Twitter user who shared the Youtube video called it a “school play,” the reenactment was actually a short play directed by Marc Klasfeld and performed in an LA theater. He had received harsh criticism from the likes of Bill O’Reilly and other professionals, but the original YouTube video earned 4.8 million views and almost 10,000 (mostly positive) comments.
The professional child actors in the video (shown below) reenact the final scene of the classic gangster movie involving Tony, Elvira, Manny, and Tony’s sister Gina. The boy playing Tony Montana is filmed saying the famous line “say hello to my little friend.”
The original mountain of cocaine on Tony’s desk had been replaced with a mound of popcorn. The security camera footage had been replaced with stick figure drawings. The tiger has been switched with a stuffed animal. The F bomb had been substituted for a kid-friendly “fudge” version as well.
Needless to say, this performance is “motherfudging” AWESOME.
