‘Uptown Funk’ Video Gets a Fresh Boost from this Mashup Featuring 66 Year Old Movie Dance Clips


Just about everyone knows the song “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson, featuring the amazing vocals of Bruno Mars, but this video delivers a little more than most people expect. This mashup of old movie dance scenes creates a music video like you’ve never seen before.

The precision dancing of 66 year-old dance movie clips fills this video as they are seamlessly incorporated into this mashup. It features old-school tap dancing, famous dancers including Fred Astaire, Ginger Rodgers, and young Shirley Temple, and groups of choreographed masterpieces from nearly half a century ago. This video even features clips from that famous mouse “Tom” (from Tom and Jerry), as well as a special appearance but funnymen Laurel and Hardy.

If you love old classic movies and the true talent that came with them, you will surely appreciate how awesome this video mashup is. I really don’t know how they were able to sync up these moves so immaculately. From tap dancing to the smooth moves of classical dance routines, this kind of give modern dance a run for its money. The producer really makes you feel as if these were the original participants in this 21st century video of this song. You’ve got to check this out. It’s totally awesome!
