Beauty and the BEAT: If Disney’s Belle lived in the hood
I don’t even… I can’t even… *fans self with hands* hoooo!
I know I’m a hysterically hyperbolic like, 4 trillion per cent of the time, but I’m not even exaggerating when I say that this is the best YouTube video I’ve seen this year.
Parody? Check. Hilarity? Check. Clever lyrics, nostalgia factor, nice shots, fun characters, Antoine Dodson cameo, weave jokes, childhood icon / contemporary pop culture mashup? 5 million checks.
If this video were human, I’d marry it. Sheet, I’d marry it anyway if humans were legally allowed to marry YouTube videos.
Then again, if humans could marry Internet videos, they’d probably be allowed to marry more tangible things too — in which case I’d already be engaged to my iPhone.
But I digress.
Big ups to Todick Hall and everybody who helped him create this fantastic re-imaging of the opening scene from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
She really is a boogie girl, that Belle.
