So in the weeks after Avengers: Age Of Ultron was released, I have watched the Internet descend into the first part of Marvel fandom Civil War. (It’s funny because I suspect we’ll be in a similar predicament leading up to Captain America: Civil War.)
But I would like to call for my fellow Marvelites to watch this hilarious parody video brought to us by the Screen Team of YouTube.
I think, bar none, the song of 2014 was “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and performed by Bruno Mars. The song, infusing some truly funky 70’s soul and just general happy vibes, lifted us all out of a music coma that we’ve been in. The song is practically life-changing, and will literally make your day five hundred percent better by coming on your iPod.
Don’t argue, it’s a fact.
So what happens if you combine Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with some funky fresh beats?
You get “Ultron Funk” because Ultron sounds similar to Uptown. And why the hell not?
The following video from this wondrous burst of madness includes: Captain America in curlers, Hulk getting down with his bad self, Scarlet Witch destroying DC, Thor telling Cap to put the hammer down, Hawkeye out and out saying that half the people here don’t know him, and, the best part, Ultron’s super sweet dance moves.
Like damn Ultron, if you bust out those sick moves then… well okay you still would have been destroyed. But I would have laughed my ass off at it.
I mean, what more can be said about “Ultron Funk”? It’s an absolute joy to watch, and I admire like hell the level of creativity that went into this parody. You can tell love went into this.
After all, as the great Mel Brooks said, you gotta love what you make fun of (or something to that effect).
Avengers: Age of Ultron is currently in theatres.
