Another “Uptown Funk” Mashup
“Uptown Funk” is clearly one catchy song. This compilation pays homage to the classic movies of the 1920s through the 1960s.
The clips of old movie stars dancing are perfectly time to the music and appear as if Fred, Frank, Gene and Judy had an early recording of the song handy to help them lay out some awesome dance numbers.
Bonus Tip: Click the “CC” icon in the bottom right corner and it will show the name of the movie on the screen.
By the way, in case you were now curious, here’s the official video for “Uptown Funk.” Watch and enjoy!
“Sesame Street”-Beastie Boys Mashup
Now, if you’re ready for something really different, you’ll want to watch this Beastie Boys-“Sesame Street” mashup.
A Sesame Street superfan has just made the most incredible video of our favorite muppets rocking out to the classic Beastie Boys hit “Sabotage.”
The original “Sabotage” video, made in 1994 and directed by Spike Jonze, earned five nominations at the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year, Best Group Video, Breakthrough Video, Best Direction in a Video, and Viewer’s Choice. Sadly, the video lost in all five categories, however, in 2009, “Sabotage” won best video in the new category of Best Video (That Should Have Won a Moonman.)
Now, the classic ’90s music video is receiving homage from our favorite Sesame Street characters, with video project manager Adam Schleichkorn editing clips from “Follow That Bird” to re-create the 1970s vintage style of the original video. (The Beastie Boys version was inspired by 1970s cop dramas like “Hawaii Five-O” and “S.W.A.T.”
The result is pure genius. It’s incredible how easily Big Bird and the gang fit into this remake (although, of course, in this version, no one is wielding a switchblade.)
