I am astounded at the creative, high-production-value entertainment that people put together just to get hits on YouTube. Such as this “Spell Block Tango”, Disney villains singing a rewritten “Cell Block Tango” from Chicago. I recognized Amber Riley (Glee) as Ursula, but everyone is identified at the end. And I like the clever touch of red scarves signifying mayhem.
(To soapbox for a moment, this is why more material should be public domain. Here we have a song from an almost-forty-year-old show (Chicago debuted in 1975, the first time) that was based on a 1926 play, performed by fairy-tale characters that appeared in these particular looks from 1937 to 1994. And yet, someone put them all together to create something that I can say with confidence was never envisioned by any of the original creators, nor does it take away from any of those original productions. I want to see more creative reworks without fear.)
