Youtube Star Creates Hilarious “Silent” Version Of David Bowie And Mick Jagger’s “Dancing In The Street” Video.

The song “Dancing in the Street” was originally written in 1964 by Marvin Gaye, William “Mickey” Stevenson and Ivy Jo Hunter and recorded by Martha and the Vandellas The song was an instant hit! Since then, the song has been covered by many groups from the Mamas & the Papas to Van Halen to The Kinks and more! But the 1985 David Bowie/Mick Jagger collaboration topped charts in both the United Kingdom and United States.

David Bowie and Mick Jagger’s cover was recorded for the Live Aid famine relief cause, and all proceeds for the song went to the charity. But– as great as both the cover and the cause may be– over three decades later, it’s the music video that people most remember.

Perhaps one of the most “80s” things to have come out of the decade, the “Dancing in the Street” music video is over the top, to say the least. So writer, director, and YouTuber Strack Azar had a little bit of fun with the crazy video, editing the music right out of it and then adding in his own sound effects (including his own singing voices for Bowie and Mick Jagger!).

The result is as weird as it is hilarious. Check out Azar’s “Silent Music Video” below.
