SATURDAY SPECIAL: A Gay Spin On A Disney Classic Gets 2 Million Hits

Earlier this month, I was working on the production of a flash mob in DC when people started talking about their favorite and funniest YouTube videos.  One of the dancers said "Hey Girl!" and everyone laughed, except me. I was quickly directed to this spoof of Alan Mencken & Howard Ashman's opening song from BEAUTY AND THE BEAST which gets a decidedly gay (and bitchy) spin.

This video has been around for a little while, going up last September, but I never got wind of it until now. Also, I'd like to give some props to The Walt Disney Co. for not taking it down since then.  More than most entertainment companies (Sony, hello?), Disney realizes the ultimate value (not to mention great publicity) of a fun viral video.
