As Disney continues to take their classic animated stories and remake them as live action films, we here at Shirtless Violinist HQ continue turning them into Gay Love Stories! We’ve put our own gay twist on Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, and Hercules….but now it’s Aladdin’s turn!
We all remember the scene when Aladdin and Jasmine go on their famous magic carpet ride, swooping over clouds while singing “A Whole New World”. In our version, Al and Jazz meet in Yoga class and instead of a magic carpet, they find themselves on a magic yoga mat!
For this unique take on the classic, I found two wonderful Acro-Yogis (yep, that’s a thing!) who developed a beautiful “flow” just for our music video. Zach and Andre are not only extremely bendy…they’re also really hot!! (Oh yeah, and talented.)
(And that kiss! Need I say more?)
I hope you enjoy, and please leave a comment with YOUR suggestion for our next “Gay Disney” retelling! (Lion King, anyone?)
