Brittani’s Video Party: Disney Princesses Release Outtakes from Failed Pilot

Greetings. This is Brittani’s Video Party, where I bring some of the “best” videos from all over my internet together so we can clap, cry or deconstruct. Have you ever gotten to a video and it already has 33 million views and you wonder where the heck have you been? Well I’m here to help you so that you see it when it only has 32 million views. Aim low, world. Aim low.

Jasmine, Belle, Ariel and Snow White trade in their tiaras for guns in the pilot episode of Black Ops: Disney Princesses. These animated Disney stars get live action counterparts as they make the world a safer place, one terrorist at a time. The series is created/produced/directed by Taylor Vaughn-Lasley.

Sarah Silverman released her failed NBC pilot, Susan 313 on YouTube. I don’t think anyone’s more surprised than Silverman that she was allowed to do this. It’s not an effort to rally support, it’s just a cool thing that happened. It stars outstanding humans Harris Wittels, June Diane Raphael, Tig Notaro and Jeff Goldblum.

Outtakes is a semi-improvised mockumentary web series about two trans* guys filming web cam videos in a bedroom. It’s based on the transition video genre which captures people in the process of transitioning. The show was created by playwright, Sylvan Oswald.

I don’t understand why lyrics videos are a thing but if they’re going to involve women singing to each other while making dramatic faces, sign me up. In Katy Perry’s “Unconditional” video, model Erika Linder is giving you concerned butch face.

If you have a video you think everyone should see, tweet it to @bishilarious for consideration. And of course feel free to post your favorite videos from the week below.

  1. I’m a huge Sarah Silverman fan and my friends hate me for it.

    I didn’t watch the Disney Princesses video because I have negative feelings towards anything Disney, but I like the casting. Disney constantly casts white peeps to play Jasmine and hardly ever dark skinned for Tiana, so I can dig it.
