How did it take me this long to discover Patty Cake Productions?? I mean, it's Disney, it's catchy pop songs, and it's based right here in Orlando. My shame is great.
BUT! I *did* finally find them, and my gain is your gain, fellow Dizgeeks.
Let's start with their most popular video, the story of Cinderella told through Taylor Swift songs:
How adorable is the Fairy Godmother singing 22?? I can't even.
I'm also loving the story of Sleeping Beauty set to Michael Jackson songs, because Maleficent singing "I'm Bad" is sooooo gooooood:
There are lots more on Patty Cake Production's Youtube channel, and you should absolutely watch them all - even when some of the song selections are a little hit-or-miss, ha. (I'm not sure I can forgive them for making Snow White sing "Hold It Against Me" by Britney Spears. NOOOOOO.)
For example, I didn't know most of the Ariana Grande songs they used for Little Mermaid, but Vanessa singing Dangerous Woman makes the whole video, so don't skip it. Besides, even if you don't like a song choice, the visuals and costumes are still pretty incredible.
I'll end with the first Unexpected Musical I watched, The Disney Showman. You guys, it's the story of Walt Disney told with Greatest Showman songs. SQUEEEEE. And again, so, SO well done:
I'm surprised this hasn't gone viral yet. Go give the Patty Cake team some love, won't you? I don't know them or anything - I just want them to make more! :)
