BuzzFeed's "If Disney Princesses Texted Their Prince" Video Is Way Too Real
We've been imagining Disney characters doing everything from having Instagram accounts to functioning IRL lately — so it was really only a matter of time before we started imagining what Disney Princesses texting their Princes would look like, wasn't it? BuzzFeed's latest video taps into this idea, and it's just as hilarious as you probably think it is. Let's just say that Phillip and Shang… aren't always the sharpest tools in the shed.
BuzzFeed actually took their inspiration from a Disney-themed Tumblr, Miss Macey Mouse. Run by a woman named Miranda, the Tumblr featured a series of imagined text messages between Disney Princesses and Princes back in 2013 — and it's kind of the best. Movies from the classic era, through the Disney Renaissance of the '90s, all the up to the present are represented. Given that the post is from August 2013, Frozen, of course, isn't on there (it wasn't released until November of that year)… but maybe it's time to start thinking about a follow-up post featuring Anna, Elsa, and the rest of the gang. Who else is curious what Olaf and Sven might talk about?
Miranda, by the way, does actually work for Disney; she complete the Disney College Program in 2010 and currently works as a Campus Representative for it. As she puts it, “That basically means I help students learn about DCP and the whole process. It is literally my job to answer lots of questions for people who apply or want to apply.” Thinking about doing the Disney College Program yourself? Head on over to her FAQ page; it's a good place to get started.
Here are a couple of my favorites; scroll down to watch the full video, and check out Miss Macey Mouse for even more that didn't get the animated treatment. Belle's exchanges with the Beast — pardon, Adam — are not to be missed.
I mean, Scuttle is great and all, but let's face it: He's not exactly a reliable dictionary. Then again, if Ariel wants to keep calling forks “dinglehoppers,” then that's totally up to her, isn't it? Deal with it, Eric.
2. Snow White
You might want to rethink that one, Nameless Princes.
Snow White runs a tight ship. Slovenly Princes will not be tolerated.
Here, Phillip. You look like you could use a brush-up on your texting etiquette.
What, Shang? What did you just realize?
Yes, Shang. Yes you are.
