A Disney fan has made a COVID-19-themed song parody from the song ‘Belle’ from Beauty and the Beast.
In it, Belle refuses to follow social distancing protocol, going about her usual business in her village, shopping and chatting as if nothing is wrong.
She even complains of having coronavirus symptoms, leading to criticism and warnings from everyone around her. HA!
The YouTube video, which uses footage from the animated film but replaces the lyrics, was created by Sharon Luxenburg and uploaded on March 24.
‘Little town, everyone’s in lockdown,’ sings Belle. ‘All alone, they remain at home. Little town full of little people waking up to say…’
Here, the villagers chime in, saying ‘Stay home!’ instead of ‘Bonjour!’
‘I’ve yet to see a reckless fool quite like her, without a mask or gloves she goes!’ sing the villagers. ‘In the Grand Princess she’s been, and she thinks no one had seen. She’s gonna get us all infected, that is Belle!’
‘And there she goes with runny nose and fever,’ sing the villagers. ‘She never covered when she sneezed. She forgets to wash her hands, though she claims to comprehend the dangers of Corona, that is Belle.’
During Belle’s big solo, she echoes people who aren’t taking the virus seriously.
‘No, the world isn’t ending. This is just another flu, you’ll see,’ she sings. ‘True, now the death rate’s higher. But we can’t control when we will die, so let it be.’
