Hugh Jackman lip-syncing 'Teenage Dream' is the Wednesday pick-me-up you need
It’s Wednesday. It’s mid-afternoon. There isn’t enough Starbucks in the world to help you over the hump that is Wednesday, mid-afternoon. But maybe coffee isn’t the answer. Maybe the pick-me-up you’re really hankering after (even if you’re not entirely aware of it yourself) is watching a hunky Australian actor lip-syncing a classic Katy Perry song.
Don’t believe me? Feast your eyes on the majesty that is Hugh Jackman, dub-smashing (which I just decided is now a verb) “Teenage Dream” while sitting in his car, presumably parked in his driveway, listening to the song on repeat. The part-time Wolverine posted the adorable video to his Instagram with the caption, “Oh nothing much … just singing along to @katyperry! Living a teenage dream!!”
Sure, Hugh. Nothing much. Just making the world a way better place with your crazy facial expressions.
Oh, hello, dancing eyebrows.
Can we just take a second to imagine what it must be like for Katy Perry to get an Instagram notification alerting her to the fact that THE Hugh Jackman is not only a fan of her music, but also lip-syncing it for all the internet to see? Stars align! If I cross my fingers hard enough, maybe she will reciprocate by dub-smashing (there it is again; someone call Webster’s) one of Hugh’s epic performances in Les Miserables. My top suggestions: “Who Am I?,” “One Day More,” or “Bring Him Home,” for those high notes. Or should I say, those Hugh notes?
Do you feel a little bit more energized or is it just me? For more Wednesday inspiration, check out the full video in all it’s glory, down below.
