This 'Uptown Funk' Mash-up -- of 280 Different Movies -- Will Make You Say Hallelujah! (VIDEO)

What do Shrek, shirtless Patrick Swayze, and Napoleon Dynamite all have in common? They look like they might like "Uptown Funk," that's what. Or, at least that's what one YouTuber thought when he remade "Uptown Funk" with clips from 280 different movies. And he was right. He was so, so right.

This video, nay, this ... this ... art made us realize some things. Mostly, it made us realize that the sole purpose of some movies (like, say, Fat Albert, for example) was for them to be made into a remix of "Uptown Funk." Don't believe me? Just watch:

Hot damn!

Michelle Pfeiffer

Honestly -- what are the chances that, in The Bucket List, Jack Nicholson would just casually stand there and say Michelle Pfieffer's name? Slim. This was obviously written in with the intention that it would someday be included in the very video we're watching today.

Thanks, Christopher Walken. Thanks for being you, and more importantly, thanks for saying "watch" while holding a watch and then twitching your eye. You made this video possible. Thank you.

Now that you're prepared, it's time to funk it up:

So, yes. This is genius. The creator should go down in Internet history somewhere for having a lot of free time. But ... there's just one thing. How many times do they say "Hallelujah" in "Uptown Funk"? Enough that it's unforgiveable that he forgot to include Sister Act, a.k.a. the home of THE most important movie Hallelujah of all time:
