Frozen Parody Countdown
BY ELEANOR LEWIS ON APRIL 17, 2014
It’s been five months since the release of Frozen and some might tell me to let it go, but for the first time in forever I’ve felt a deep connection to a Disney movie. My love for Frozen is an open door, beckoning in all the associated media: memes, GIFs and yes, video parodies. To my pleasure, this movie has generated thousands of little Internet snowflakes. Compiled here is a countdown of the best Frozen parodies available on the YouTubes.
5. Frozen Honest trailer: I’m a major fan of Honest Movie trailers. This web series by Screen Junkies has parodied everything from Twilight to 300, pointing out inconsistencies and poking fun at many a major motion picture. The Frozen honest trailer is not my favorite honest trailer out there, but it is worth watching. They point out some funny, hidden parallels in the plot that I would have never noticed.
4. Good Looking Parents Sing Disney’s Frozen: These people assume a lot in their title, but whatever, they fit the bill as they lip sync “Love Is An Open Door.” Mom/Anna has an extremely expressive face to match her cartoon counterpart, and the Dad works his flowy hair just like Hans. The best part of this video is the couple’s child in the back, giving zero cares to her parents’ antics, all the while chewing on a book.
3. Christina Bianco’s “Let It Go” cover and 2. Disney and Pixar Sing “Let it go:” These two impressions videos blow my mind. In Christina Bianco’s cover, she does musical impressions of the divas. Indina Menzel and Demi Lovato, the song’s original singers, are featured but she also hits on other icons like Britney Spears and Celine Dion. In the second video Brian Hull sings the same song as 21 of everyone’s favorite Disney characters. He does spot on impressions of Mike Wazowski, Lumiére, Doug (from UP), and my personal favorites Winnie the Pooh and Goofy.
1. Help me hide a body? This one is my favorite. We’ve all heard of bad lip reading (if you haven’t, check it out); this is bad lip reading stuck in a freezer and zapped with musical magic. It takes the lighthearted video of “Do You Want To Build A Snowman,” and inserts the morbid request, “Will you help me hide a body?” which results in general, juxtaposed hilarity. But only watch the 45 second one, the full-length video tries too hard.
