Alex Boye “Oldtown Funk (Mark Ronson-Bruno Mars Cover)”

If you can watch this video of some Senior Citizens getting down to “Uptown Funk” and not experience joy, then you need to start considering some serious life changes.

Alex Boye dressed up like a grandpa and employed a group of actual elderly people to dance and get funked up with him for the video. And these aren’t just any regular ass old people, according to the press release they have, “Between them, they have raised 500 children, 1,200 grandchildren, and 250 great grandchildren.” The video is a tremendous amount of fun and proves that age is just a number. Or maybe it doesn’t prove any hackneyed shit like that, but it’s a great way to pass four minutes.

So this clearly wins at everything. But in case you’re wondering who the silver medalist was in the “Uptown Funk” cover Olympics, please enjoy Pomplamoose’s excellent disco redo of the song below.
