We technically have five days left before summer officially ends and fall begins, so you can keep listening to all the contenders for song of the summer if you want. It’s totally OK.

If “Uptown Funk” happens to be your pick and you’ve made it your business to watch every imaginable rendition of the monster hit, make sure you hit pause on whatever it is you’re watching on YouTube and play this one instead.

Besting this take on the song that supercuts famous movie quotes, YouTube user What’s the Mashup? produced what could be seen as the ultimate evidence that “Uptown Funk” is the quintessential dance tune every party playlist should have. Comprised of 100 dance scenes from various films, every snippet used seems to fall perfectly in sync with Mark Ronson’s masterpiece.

Obvious picks like Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Napoleon Dynamite, and Saturday Night Fever make the cut, as well as surprise appearances by clips from Face/Off, The Goonies, and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Given the variety of scenes used, movie buffs would certainly have a grand ol’ time identifying the films featured in the mashup. If you need a little help, you can check out the full list of movies used in the video description.
