Guilty Pleasure

Thanks for all the awesome ideas yesterday, folks! You've got my blog-writing juices a-flowing. But before I delve into some of your suggestions, there's something I would like to share with you, because apparently I like public displays of humiliation.

Everyone has a YouTube guilty pleasure. Watching music videos, movies, vlogs, etc. Most are harmless. Most are understandable, and shared by millions.

Not mine.

My YouTube guilty pleasure is something far more -- oh, how shall I put this -- giggly. Giggly as in it makes you feel like the five-year-old princess-y (or prince-y, for you menfolk) child you once were.

Okay, I'll just say it quick: I'm addicted to watching Disney crossovers.

Wait -- what the heck is that?

Exactly. Few people have heard of it, few people admit to watching it. But alas, my writer-friends, I am one of the few who lets hours flick by while watching 4-minute-long videos of two Disney movies shmooshed into new and exciting romance stories. Jim and Ariel, Eric and Pocahontas, Belle and Phoebus, Chel and Kuzco.

Trust me, they're better than they sound. Well, some of them. And, in true Sara-like fashion, I shall post a few of my faves.

For those loyal to the original movies, these may suck. Try to watch with an open-story mind.

Story for this one: Belle is engaged to Gaston but in love with Phoebus. Her father, Frollo, wants to keep her and Phoebus apart. Chaos ensues.



Maybe it's just because the song is AWESOME. But the editing is fantastic too; xNightshadex makes the best crossovers I've found so far.


This one is a bit simpler: just a spin on Chel and Kuzco.




Jim Hawkins and Ariel are a popular crossover couple. Mainly because they're just so darn cute together. Again, a father-keeping-true-lovers-apart story.



Good luck not YouTubing "Disney crossover couples" for the next two hours.

Oh I adore Disney cartoons! I can't believe I never knew these montages existed.

Natalie Whipple said...

This is hilarious. My goodness. Not a huge Disney fan, but this is quite innovative.

Mariah -- Any time :)

Megan -- I know! They're such a well-kept secret.

Natalie -- Isn't it though? Talk about people having too much free time and too much imagination...

Lisa and Laura said...

Hilarious! I'll have to make sure my kids don't find out about these. The only thing worse would be them finding out about Santa...

Najela said...

Wow... the editing is really good. It would be cool if they could use the dialogue too. MUST NOT GO TO YOUTUBE... must study...

Kate said...

I have a similar obsession with Harry Potter videos on youtube. When they add songs and change the storyline, I get so easily hooked. I've lost (or gained) hours that way.

I love the Belle and Phoebus crossover. I'm a fan of Skillet and Belle is my favourite Disney princess.

All of them are quite cool really =D

OMG those are awesome! Also...I have an award for you!

I think they should do this with Muppets. I think Beaker and Ariel have a future together.

Curse you :P I've got a weakness for spending hours on YouTube. My big time waster is watching AMVs of favorite anime.

I've even been guilty enough to make my own :P

Sigh...I'm watching these now...and probably the rest of the day. :P

BTW, that Belle and Phoebus one is the definition of AWESOME.

sraasch said...

L&L -- Yes, hide the children. These alternate stories may just confuse them.

Najela -- The editing is why I love xNightshadex's so much; such editing envy...

Kate -- Belle's my favorite too :)

Frankie -- Thanks! teehee, awards are always fun :D

Carrie -- Dude. If I was at all good at editing videos, I would so do that.

Dara -- No kidding. Hours go by with these things. Hours. It's sad, really.

Hayley said...

I'm now addicted Sara, like I didn't need anything else sucking up my time. I am now obsessed, so cute! Thank you Sara for banishing my ignorance of not knowing about these amazing crossovers.

inthewritemind said...

I would also make one if I knew how...unfortunately I don't have anything but WMM which I highly doubt would be capable of doing some of these.

But I really want to now! LOL. It makes me miss making my old AMVs...
