If there was ever a better Monday morning pick-me-up than this "Uptown Funk" cover from Alex Boye and Dancing Grannies, we have yet to see it. Published to YouTube last Tuesday, the video started going viral late last week, picking up coverage on new giants like the New York Daily News, the Huffington Post, Mashable, and more. Since then, it's garnered almost 3 million views -- and if you've already seen it then you know why. Between watching some grandmothers do the robot, Boye speed around on a motor scooter, and a 92 year-old do a split, the video is nonstop entertainment, and sure to make you smile from ear to ear.

In the video's YouTube description, Boye wrote:

"All the grandmas and grandpas in this video did their own stunts. They range in age from 65 to 92! Between them, they have raised 500 children, 1,200 grandchildren and 250 great grandchildren!"

This isn't the first popular song he's covered, but it's by far our favorite. Check out some of his other covers, or click the play button below to see the video that got us out of a Monday morning slump, and up groovin' to the beat.
