A short film about the intersection of race, gender, and fairytale dog-men.
FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF
Disney has had more than a few missteps in its past. And not just because of that super weird and creepy blue Will Smith genie. And while media often reflects culture, culture is just as often shaped by media, which underlines how important is that organizations, storytellers, artists, and filmmakers be aware of the role their work plays in this equation, as well as consider how that work might be perceived in the future. And, given the recent blowback on Aladdin, it looks like the time could not be more right.
But what we love about this video is that it does this in such a fun way. It ‘s not preachy or pedantic. It ‘s spot-on, and just very, very funny.
This fairy tale ending puts your biases to the test via the super funny Dhruv Uday Singh.
