Fortnite Battle Royale replays have peaked with brilliant Bruno Mars remake

This Fortnite cinematic is out here drippin’ in finesse

Fortnite Battle Royale offers more than battle royale-style killing sprees. No, it’s far more complex than that: The free-to-play game also has a wonderful replay feature, which players now use to shoot their own music videos and shorts. Epic Games has even capitalized on this by holding competitions that encourage fans’ creativity.

And we may have found the most creative replay mode-made video yet. Following up on their viral hit “This is Fortnite” — a take on Childish Gambino’s “This is America” video — WiziBlimp has produced “Fortnite Finesse.” The four-minute music video recreates Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s clip for their remix of “Finesse,” a song that slaps even harder with Cardi’s verses. “Finesse” is a lovely vid on its own, but it’s beyond impressive to see how WiziBlimp makes it their own.

There’s some serious cinematography going on here — so much shot variation! That unique direction! I don’t want to think about how much money WiziBlimp spent on those perfect dancing emotes, but hey, it was for a good cause.

Like many Fortnite replays, this one has brought a ton of good vibes into a life that has really, really, really needed some. Here’s hoping it gives you a little boost today too.

Watch “Fortnite Finesse” above, and compare it to Bruno Mars’ and Cardi B’s throwback-styled “Finesse (Remix)” video below.
