Sean Hayes’ Bruno Mars Lip Sync Video For “Perm” – WATCH!
On Facebook, the “Will & Grace” star wrote, “Here’s 2 minutes of much-needed distraction provided by Scott Icenogle & me…and, of course, the incomparable Bruno Mars. We encourage everyone to take a little time today to ‘loosen them shoulders up.'”
In the video, which has already received more than 200,000 views in just a couple of hours, Hayes and husband Icenogle fittingly don fake wigs to pretend-sing Mars’ song “Perm.” The track is featured on the performer’s most recent album, 24K Magic. And the couple’s amusing interpretation comes a couple a months after Hayes and Icenogle did a 20-second snippet of the song “24K Magic.”
But while that was totally casual, the new video for “Perm” is a full-on production. Embracing a retro vibe, as Mars himself often does, Hayes and Icenogle do a spot-on lip sync of the singer’s sing-talk style, and are even joined by extras as they act out the song’s lyrics. And there’s something truly mesmerizing about Hayes’ mouthing, “Activate your sexy.”
As the high quality suggests, this is not the comedic actor’s first foray into parody music videos. As Gossip Cop reported, last year Hayes impersonated Sia for “Cheap Thrills.” He and Icenogle have also taken on Jennifer Hudson, Iggy Azalea, Flo Rida, and more.
