Watch Brad Pitt Help Bruno Mars Cover James Brown’s ‘Sex Machine’

By Shannon Carlin

Brad Pitt can not only act, he can shake a mean tambourine.

This was proven during a charity event in New Orleans where the actor got onstage with Bruno Mars to perform a cover of James Brown’s “Get Up (I Feel Like Being) a Sex Machine.” 

Mars kicks off the song with a little ode to Pitt, “You might have seen him in Fight Club. You might have seen him in Inglourious Basterds. Benjamin Button.”

Bruno Mars goes on to repeat Benjamin Button a few more times. “I really like Benjamin Button,” Mars informed he crowd.

But the best part is when Mars ad-libs at the 1:09 mark, “Brad Pitt you sexy motherf—er.” It’s like it should have been part of the song’s lyrics all along.
