Jagger and Bowie’s ‘Dancing in the Street’ video is even funnier with new audio track

As if Mick Jagger and David Bowie’s 1985 Dancing in the Street video wasn’t hilarious enough with all those surreal dance moves, extreme facial expressions and wacky outfits, a clever fella by the name of Mario Wienerroither has gone and turned it into something even funnier.

Mario’s schtick is to take a music video, remove the original track and then replace it with sounds he imagines were actually made at the time – with comical results.

His “musicless musicvideos” have been gathering quite a following on YouTube over the last year, but his latest one – Dancing in the Street – must surely be his best to date.

Picking up more than a million views since landing on the video-sharing site just four days ago, Mario’s 60-second Jagger-Bowie effort (below) sits alongside others on his YouTube channel, including, most notably, Queen’s I Want to Break Free and Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel.

All the videos come with the message: “Created for parody purposes; no copyright infringement intended.” Let’s hope the record companies have a sense of humor and leave these up – it’d certainly be a shame if these superbly crafted sequences were to suddenly disappear without a trace.
