Make-up Mash-up: ‘Newsies’ Does “Uptown Funk”

Leave a comment

newsies baleNewsies: the perfect film for 9th grade me. I was young, idealistic, totally getting into musicals, already devoted to Disney, and absolutely enamored with teen boys in newsboy caps. Who knew adorable Christian Bale would go on to participate in The Dark Knight Rises, the cinematic ruination of both Christopher Nolan and Batman for me?

But perhaps in some plea for forgiveness, Bale has sent me this mash-up through the interwebs: “I was once cute and loveable. Pair me with a poppy song and I still can be!” His PR people on a viral campaign.

It’s a start, Christian. It’s a start. You really are adorable when dancing to ironically anachronistic songs.
