People are totally losing it over this Scarface remake starring children that went viral on Twitter this week. The video has been retweeted almost 100,000 times since Monday.

What school decided that it would be a good idea to do a "Scarface" play?🤣😂🤣😂🤦🏾‍♂️

The "play" very accurately recreates the 1983 film's iconic ending scene.

And, of course, the little kid version of Tony Montana gets to drop his famous "say hello to my little friend" line.

People are going nuts over it.

Also, all the swearwords in the original script have been replaced with terms such as "fudge" and "B," which is amazing.

People are especially loving the set design.

Steph LdaVoski, the original poster, told BuzzFeed News he did not expect the video to blow up the way it did.

LdaVoski, a recording artist from New York, said he saw the video on YouTube and posted it to his Twitter because he thought "it was funny and crazy at the same time."

Hilariously, because he captioned it "What school decided that it would be a good idea to do a 'Scarface' play?" a few people were actually sort of mad about the video.

But it turns out Scarface the School Play wasn't ACTUALLY done by a school. Obvz.

The video was originally posted to YouTube under the title "Scarface School Play" in 2010, when it also went viral. But it was later revealed that the whole project was put together by music video director Marc Klasfeld. He did it with professional child actors in a theater in Los Angeles' Koreatown.

At the time, Klasfeld told the Los Angeles Times that it was "amusing" to see the outrage the video caused, adding that he wondered why the critics did not "speak out more against the sexualization of young girls in American culture or the relentless violence on screens of all sorts."

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Klasfeld for comment.
