Self-Reflexive Pelvic Thrusting From Bruno Mars



This will likely shock those who've seen our record collection or listened to any of our post punk and hip hop-heavy radio shows over the years, but we kind of luuurv crooning pop music wunderkind Bruno Mars. In addition to a sweet falsetto voice that could melt the panties off a nun and a dimpled, boyish smile reminiscent of Michael Jackson circa Off the Wall, the diminutive 25-year-old actually writes and produces (along with bandmates The Smeezingtons) all of his own music. What's more, press tour interviews suggest that Mars may actually be as sweet and clever as the melodic pop hooks that dot his debut album.

All of this is only enhanced by the fact that Mars' live show seems to include ironic pelvic thrusting that comically condenses a whole history of outlandishly sincere male pop performance from Elvis to Usher and beyond. Thank goodness a smitten fangirl (not us!) took it upon herself to compile concert footage of the doo-wopper 'hittin' it' 74 times. Lady boners ahoy!

it's a good thing his pants are reasonably tight, thus nestling his goods securely. otherwise that could hurt the twig as it slams against the berries "two times!" then "six times!" over and over..

my lady boner also appreciates my snug tights as I try to mimic him.
