What do you get when you combine the action franchise spawned from the best-selling spy thrillers of the late Robert Ludlum that has become one of the most influential movie series of the past 25 years and the smokin’ funky grooves of late 1970’s disco?
Bourne To Be Alive, that’s what.
This video mashes up scenes from all three of the original Jason Bourne adventures – The Bourne Identity (2002), The Bourne Supremacy (2004), and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) – and scenes from the trailers for the forthcoming semi-sequel/franchise reboot The Bourne Legacy with the 1979 dance floor classic “Born to Be Alive” by Patrick Hernadez.
You can watch the video here below.
Your enjoyment of this video depends entirely on your tolerance for two things: the repetition of the name Bourne and hot disco tunes made at a time when the nation was declaring unholy war on the genre, culminating in the infamous “Disco Demolition Night” riot at Chicago’s Comiskey Park on July 12, 1979.
I wonder how much ass Bourne could kick if he was forced to wear platform shoes with tiny goldfish bowls in the heels?
