Bruno Mars’ “The Lazy Song” in American Sign Language

This is an American Sign Language version of Bruno Mars’ “The Lazy Song” made accessible to native ASL users. This music video was created with a 100% deaf cast and crew. All of the performers in this music video are also a part of Deaf West’s “Spring Awakening.” We did this out of love and support for #deaftalent everywhere who are always in need of job opportunities in the entertainment industry.
