What Do Bruno Mars and Judy Garland Have In Common?
Their passion for dancing to Mars’s unbelievably catchy tune, “Uptown Funk.” Don’t Believe Me? Just Watch!
Today, it seems like there’s a new viral video every day that takes over the world, only to be forgotten tomorrow when the next video grabs everyone’s attention.
But this isn’t a bad thing. It means that it takes a really quality idea and piece of content to make it to the top, and the video we have for you here is certainly no exception! So unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars. And unless you’re a robot, you’ve probably danced, or at the very least tapped your toes to its infectious dance beat.
Michael Buff, movie buff extraordinaire and all-around creative type, joined the thousands who produced dance videos choreographed to “Uptown Funk,” but his idea took the concept to a whole new level: Buff put together clips of dance scenes from movies of the Hollywood Golden Age (pre-1953).

The Song That Took Over 2015
You probably had a love-hate relationship with “Uptown Funk” this year, that ranged from DAMN, what is this amazing song? To wow, I literally can’t go anywhere without hearing this song… To, you know what? I’m okay with that. This funky fresh beat speaks to my soul.
And you know what else? Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly totally feel the same way. There are over 66 classic films used in this video, including the aforementioned film GODS in Anchors away and the classic Broadway cast from Show Boat, 1936!
An Uptown Trip Down Memory Lane
Oh, this? Yeah, this scene from Singing In The Rain with Debbie Reynolds, Gene Kelly, and Donald O’Connor DEFINITELY made the cut. I can’t think of a more appropriately epic dance move for “Uptown Funk” than that bold couch slide. Can you?
