This method of flirting is “koala-ty.”
For those who happen to be fans of both Bruno Mars and marsupials, prepare for your hearts to melt. The singer posted a video on his Instagram Thursday (March 28) of himself posing with a very relaxed koala, naturally delivering a few punny pick-up lines. To really set the mood, the unmistakable sax hook to the George Michael-sung Wham! classic “Careless Whisper” plays in the background.
“Hey girl, if I could get your number so I could koala you up sometime,” Mars says directly to the camera, suppressing laughter. “Take you on vacation, sip on some piña koalas…Because I don’t believe in quantity, I believe in koala-ty.”
“When it comes to spittin that hot fire I'm over koalafied! Thank you Australia for everything!!” reads the video caption.
The adorable clip comes in conjunction with Mars' final Australia date on his 24K Magic World Tour. The “That's What I Like” singer will be sweeping through Asia and Europe this summer, before heading back to the U.S. in August to headline Lollapalooza.
