Beauty and the Bed Intruder

If you follow me on twitter you may have seen me tweet about watching "Beauty and the Beast". And you may have read that I found a correlation between "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Bed Intruder". And you may have been confused. Because really. What do Beauty and the Bed Intruder have in common?

I mean, I'm still all caught up about "The Bed Intruder" song. The whole "hide yo kids, hide yo wife..." You get the idea. I find myself humming the rhythm sometimes. It's catchy. What. Can. I. Say.

So what does Beauty have to do with this guy?

Nothing actually. I wasn't referring to a psychological longing for attention or something more. And I wasn't really looking all that deep. And in all actuality, Beauty has nothing in common with the Bed Intruder. It's Gaston!

When I sat down to watch one of my favorite Disney movies, I didn't intend on blogging about it. But, while I was watching the movie, I heard a song called "The Mob Song". If you listen carefully you can pick out that some of the lyrics go:

"The Beast will go after your children. He'll come after them in the night" (beginning)
and then later, the crowd sings:
"Bring your guns, bring your knives. Save your children and your wives. We'll save the village and our lives. We'll kill the beast!" (around 2:07 in the following video). View for yourself in the video below.

And...I've now proved that my love of Disney and YouTube borderlines upon obsession. I mean, really. Who would connect the dots between the two? Sure, it's not exactly the same. But, to me? Close enough. Before I looked up the lyrics, I thought the song went, "Bring your guns, bring your knives. Hide your children and your wives."

I just want to say, I'm pretty sure those townspeople were thinking...."We gonna find YOU!"

Oh wow. I'm going to stop now.
Really :)
