Bruno Mars is giving us straight Friday afternoon fever with his fresh-out-the-box retro-look video for his shimmering gold disco-funk track “Treasure” from his album Unorthodox Jukebox.
In the new music video, Bruno Mars and company are wearing matching red ’70s-style pants suits and patterned button-down shirts showing just the right amount of chest hair and gold chains.
Dancing in a synchronized triangle on a stage shrouded with washed-out stage lights that make the whole backdrop glisten, Mars does what he does best: entertain while making us want to simultaneously dance and swoon.
People often compare Mars’ vocal quality to Michael Jackson; fittingly, “Treasure” would be right at home in a Jackson 5 video archive.
Disco balls and Colgate smiles included.
