“Uptown Funk” continues its path to world domination (probably) with this video that pairs the still-resonant tale of Christian Bale as a young newsboy with Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s inescapable hit.
The glory of this video is how perfectly the choreography from the film syncs up to the song. And man, we forgot how fierce baby Bale is in Newsies. Get it.
Fun Fact: Newsies was both a critical and commercial flop when it was released in 1992. It grossed slightly over $2.8 million on a production budget of $15 million, per Box Office Mojo, though it gained a formidable cult following in the years after its theatrical release. Just ask Bale: “You say something bad about Newsies, and you have an awful lot of people to answer to,” he told Movieline in 1997.
