Sharam "Fun" remakes the Bullitt Chase – Click above to watch video after the jump

Now here's a quandary; What do inane pop beats and the Steve McQueen classic Bullitt have in common? If you answered less than the Cub Scouts and the Hells Angels, congratulations, we owe you a beer. Why do we ask? Our friends at The J managed to stumble across the music video for Sharam's "Fun." The twisted little piece of cinema has managed to shove all the patience-grating repetition that a disposable pop song can muster into a meticulous recreation of the Dodge Charger vs. Ford Mustang battle from Bullitt.

It's the emotional equivalent of a brake stand. Our eyes are begging to see more while our ears are doing their best to cut themselves from the sides of our skull. We don't suggest trying to wrap your mind around exactly what's going on here. Instead, mute the volume and enjoy one of the more accurate recreations of the Bullitt chase in music video history after the jump.

If you can't stand to sit there in the quiet, there's always the magic of YouTube doubler. It goes without saying that you'll need to mute "Fun."

      Holy s@&! did that suck! Note to videomakers; do not use iconic images unless you can add to their impact (this doesn't even count as an "homage"). If your intent was to offer the cinematic equivelant of scraping your fingernails on a chalkboard, you succeded (The song was not so bad, but watching the cop-out, toned down "chase" made me want to not just turn the video off, but actually run out of the room...).

      I don't hate the song (though, "disposable" may be an apt discription) but it just dozen't fit the pace of the chase. It is a beautiful recreation of the scene though.

      Wow, way to suck the excitement out of one of the greatest car chase scenes ever made.

        Oh my God you're RETARDED!! The "Rustang" sucks so bad that GM came up with their own and called it the Camaro.
