Read Time:1 Minute, 40 Second

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.
