I just died and came back from heaven to share this video with you. I don’t want to say that it’s the best rendition of “There Must be More Than This Provincial Life” that you’ll ever watch. But I also don’t want to lie to you. Not only does it star viral video sensations Antoine Dodson and GloZell Green, but it also sets the classic story in a more modern setting. One where Belle reads trashy celebrity magazines and goes to the weave shop to get her hair did.
Gaston’s totally MIA (probably off puking up all those raw eggs he insists on eating), but I can assure you that you won’t miss him. Not with Jerome in town and not when it’s set in a village that makes Belle sing lines like, “every morning just the same, since the morning that we came, to this busted wretched town.”
So get your nose out of a book and give this video a look, I promise that you’ll never look at Belle in the same way again.
Especially after she takes off with someone else’s baby.
