SpaceX Launch You Up


Parody of ‘Uptown Funk’ by Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars

Launch and land and relaunch! Back in April of 2015, SpaceX was attempting to land their Falcon 9 rocket for the first time. Naturally, we jumped at the chance to help celebrate this historical day. If you’re a fan of SpaceX—or Elon Musk and his ventures in general—pay close attention to the lyrics… there’s some deep references in there.

Years later, SpaceX has dozens of landings under their belt, but we have it on good authority that “SpaceX Launch You Up” is still the control room anthem on launch days…
