Mashup Maestro Todrick Hall (The Beyoncé Guy) Does "Evolution of Disney"

Todrick Hall's been running the internet for a while, but he recently got back on our radar with a stunning, tickling Beyoncé mashup. That one featured 70 songs buttered across four deft minutes, set to Todrick's ambitious split-screened choreography, costumery, and vocal wizardry.

The new Todrick Hall video, which you can view above, works straight through Disney's formidable musical history. Prepare to scoop the exploded remains of your jaw off the floor after you witness the seamless, flawless, fabulous fusion of The Little Mermaid's "Under the Sea," Beauty and the Beast's "Be Our Guest," Pocahontas' "Colors of the Wind," Toy Story's "You've Got a Friend in Me" and so many more. Disney Channel killers like The Cheetah Girls and That's So Raven get their moments, too, as do O.G. flicks like 1940's Pinocchio, 1950's Cinderella and '55's Lady and the Tramp. 

And of course there's Frozen—more than once.

Todrick Hall goes way back with Disney; his most popular YouTube original, with 13.3-million views, is 2013's "Disney Dudez." It boy-band-ifies America's most magical studio with ludicrous, lovable results. There have been numerous "Disney Dudez" installments; you've been warned.

Our hero also did a flash mob to Beyoncé's "End of Time" in Target. That one's got 13 million views of its own. We could go on and on, but how about you just head to the source and join the Todrick Hall fan club? We'll save you a seat.

Exit music: this year's "'90s Disney," featuring Shoshana Bean. Because you never imagined Mariah's "Always Be My Baby" mixed with classic Lion King cuts.
