The Internet, man.

In 2006, the Beastie Boys released Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That! It was a concert film with a pretty ingenious premise: the group passed around 50 cameras to folks in the audience. The majority of the footage in the documentary is from those cameras.

The sold-out concert took place on October 9th, 2004 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. One person who was in attendance: Donald Glover.

A user on Reddit noticed that there is a short cameo of a young Donald Glover; he is going crazy, rapping along to “Three MC’s and One DJ.” He posted the clip of the documentary and wrote:

What a one-in-a-million occurrence; I mean there’s crowd shots of concerts, comedy specials, sports events, and game shows all the time, but how often is it ever anyone besides just some person? Very cool.

If it’s Glover (and we’re like 90 percent sure it’s him) he would have been 21 and a student at New York University. .
