Kids give parents a 'Lion King'-inspired Christmas surprise: Watch

Posted on

These five siblings took a page out of Disney’s The Lion King to give their parents something special in a very memorable way. The present: An adorable new puppy.

The presentation: A full-scale “Circle of Life” reenactment, complete with interpretive dancing, elephant impersonations, and a recreation of the moment when Rafiki holds Simba up for all of Pride Rock to see. (Though we’re pretty sure the vocalists in the film aren’t actually singing “edamame, penguins and pajamas.”) Check out the home movie below.
