Fun on a Friday: Lions on a Plane

936full-snakes-on-a-plane-posterThose nasty b-movie Snakes on a Plane would have had no chance if these Lions were on that same vessel.

Check out this sweet vid of the cast of the Australian production of The Lion King singing “The Circle of Life” as they wait to taxi down the runway.  There are a few things I love about it:

– It has received over 10 million (!) views already (and thank Goodness because with those grossesThe Lion King really needs the attention, don’t you think?)
– Hearing those harmonies makes me want to see the show again and I haven’t seen it since 1998 (proof that a viral video can sell a ticket – when it doesn’t set out to sell)

And finally . . .

– Look closely at the faces of those actors.  They are just having a blast.  It’s a wonderful reminder to us all that we are in the entertainment business.  And if we’re not having fun, how can we expect an audience to?

Enjoy this episode of Fun on a Friday.  I’m writing it as I’m about to board a plane myself.  I’m crossing my fingers that the cast of Jersey Boys is on board.  I’d love me some Frankie Valli this morning.
