Bruno Mars Is Here to Make Us Happy Again

Take a little time today to enjoy the view and, also, the gaudy outfits in this Bruno Mars video, “24K.”

Bruno, once again, is your showboating little cousin who hops up in the middle of family dinner to do the Running Man while wearing a jeweled caftan or something. He’s also your showboating uncle who hops up in the middle of family dinner to do the Running Man while wearing a jeweled caftan or something. He will get in your face and grab your hand and tell you to get up.

And you do, because he’s so shameless and convinced that there’s nothing in the world worth being that sad about.

The seemingly vocoder-fueled “24K” is more retro happy music from Bruno, who never asks much of you but to enjoy the moment and laugh at/with him. This time, it’s while he and his boys ball out in the most decadent, ridiculous of threads and use played out player aesthetic and vernacular (“Put ya pinky rings up to the moon,” etc.) on a night out in Vegas. Smooth. Fun.

Bruno’s found his sound and he’s not going to leave it alone. The funk beats are perfect for him actually. The song is a nice jam. Nothing revolutionary for him, but it’s fun. Can’t ask for more.
