Cat Velez - 5th June 2015

Ex-JLSer Aston Merrygold gets the funk bug with Get Stupid, brought to life in James Lees' thoroughly entertaining video set in an LA shopping mall. This pop confection has upbeat energy, great choreography and unadulterated fun which owes a fair bit to the great American musical - and just a bit to Uptown Funk. Infectious, irrepressible fun.
