Sign of the Times

Here’s an amazingly creative, fluid and expressive British Sign Language rendition of Uptown Funk. Just knocks me out. Take it away, Sarah Jane…

Well, I suppose a purist might say it’s more SSE (Sign-Supported English) than BSL. But damn cool in my book. My signing is pretty rudimentary and plodding – New Year’s resolution to work on it.

It’s a specifically British rendition, and I’m sure there are ASL and other versions out there. But never mind all that. I want to see these sort of moves and this kind of spirit on dance floors everywhere…
