Uptown Funk mash-up: Golden Age films dance to Bruno Mars' song

Posted on

It’s time to bring classic movies like Kiss Me Kate and Show Boat into the modern age — and we don’t mean remakes. A new mash-up video cut together by YouTube user Nerd Fest UK incorporates footage from 66 films from the Golden Age of cinema and sets them to Bruno Mars‘ infectiously catchy “Uptown Funk.”

Thanks to the Internet, we’ve already seen 100 movie dance scenes set to the hit song and 280 films cut together to sing “Uptown Funk.” This latest video shows how timeless the tune is even when it comes to dance moves from the ’40s and ’50s. 

A statement from the user under the video reads, “My inspiration came from What’s the Mashup? … but I didn’t manage 100! The idea was to do the same for movies from the Golden Age – meaning no title later than 1953 (although there is one at the end.) Oh, and none of these clips was sped up or slowed down.”
