This Junior School Play Of Scarface Is Better Than The Actual Movie

The parents watched in silent horror

Scarface fans will know that Brian De Palma's blood & coke-soaked masterpiece is a remake of a 1932 film of the same name - but what with Al Pacino's version being widely recognised as one of the best mob movies ever made, few would argue that another reboot is required.

In this version, uploaded to YouTube with the title "Jaydon's school put on a production of Scarface", the kids binge on popcorn instead of cocaine, and replace swear words with innocent alternatives like "fudge".

Watch the scene below, for example, where Tony and Elvira argue about the kingpin's popcorn habit to horrified silence from the assembled parents in the crowd.

The clip itself was uploaded in 2010, but has gone viral on Twitter over the last two days.

It wasn't the work of a renegade theatre teacher, like you may expect. It was actually shot by Marc Klasfeld, a veteran music video producer. At the time, he said: "It was a lot of fun. We had a great cast, great kids and great parents… they enjoyed the process."

It beats Annie, that's for sure.
