'Glee,' 'Idol' vets play Disney villains in 'Chicago' spoof
“And then he ran into my tentacles. He ran into my tentacles EIGHT TIMES!”
Todrick Hall started his career as a finalist on American Idol, but the filmmaker has since become something of a YouTube sensation among a certain type of pop culture enthusiast. He’s riffed on Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Mean Girls and The Hunger Games, and just in time for Halloween, Hall has debuted his latest subject: Disney villains and singing murderers.
Hall has enlisted the likes of fellow Idol vet Adam Lambert, Glee’s Amber Riley, So You Think You Can Dance alum Blake McGrath, and more for “Spell Block Tango,” a delightful revision of “Cell Block Tango” (from the Broadway musical Chicago) as performed by some of Disney’s greatest jilted ladies — and Scar, duh. How else could these villains channel their frustration with the animated heroes who had it coming?
The whole thing is an epic watch, and an absolute must-see if you’re a fan of Disney, Chicago, or just well-choreographed production numbers in general. Behold!
