This Catchy ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Parody Encourages Everyone to Wear A Mask

Lumiere and Mrs. Potts want you to wear a mask.

In a parody of Beauty and the Beast‘s “Be Our Guest,” the singing furniture and kitchenware encourage everyone to use protective face coverings in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus. YouTube user Noah Lindquist shared the video on Saturday. Since, his Disney-inspired tune has garnered over 500,000 views.

“Wear a mask, wear a mask… is this really much to ask???” the candlestick sings to start the song, the original version of which was written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. “Tie some fabric ’round your face. Oh, it’s the simplest of tasks!” Lumiere then lists places folks should wear masks, and denounces anti-mask theories that may exist.

“Stop the lies, stop the fights. No one’s taking away your rights!” he adds. “All this speculation makes me need a flask.”

Despite the clever lyrics sung by the French candlestick, Mrs. Potts easily steals the show—and even drops an expletive here and there. “You can shout, you can glare. But listen, Karen, I don’t care,” the teapot sings. “Never seen folks so dramatic over a f**king piece of fabric.”

“We’ve got a lot to do, and it’s not ‘just the flu,’ so wear a mask,” Mrs. Potts notes.
