Vintage Video Reveals Bruno Mars Was Already a Star at Age Four[VIDEO]
If you’re a Bruno Mars fan, you may know that he’s been on stage since he was three, and that when he was seven, he appeared in the movie Honeymoon in Vegas as a tinyElvis Presley impersonator. But now a vintage video dug up by The Insider reveals just how talented — and adorable — Bruno was back then.
The video, which The Insider says was shot more than 20 years ago, features comedian and actor Pauly Shore interviewing a four-year-old Bruno. Pauly introduces him as the “the World’s Youngest Elvis Impersonator,”
and sure enough, the kid is already rocking the pompadour that would become his trademark. “Hey Pauly, I always saw you do the Weasel,” pipes up little Bruno, referring to Pauly’s surfer-dude alter-ego, the Weasel. “Now I’m gonna teach you the Elvis. Is that cool, man?”
The charismatic Bruno shows off his Elvis sneer to Pauly, as well as his astonishingly-accurate Elvis dance moves. He even busts out some Michael Jackson moves at the end, including a moonwalk. Though nobody could have predicted that Bruno would grow up to become a multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning singer, it’s easy to tell that the kid was most definitely a star.
