I know we’re all worried about the situation that Disney’s theme parks are going through right now. After all, they aren’t operating and for most, we still have no concrete idea on when things are going to return to normal.
Don’t worry though, nothing can be as bad as this late 80s Splash Mountain Rap video that was released to celebrate the opening of the attraction at Disneyland.
Here it is in all it’s glory below:
I would like some sympathy here, I had to listen to this several times to get the following lyrics for anyone that wanted to ‘rap’ along to the Splash Mountain Rap:
Well you know it is a thrill when you go downhill
Cause you’re ridin’ on on the mountain of your own free will
And you’re zippin’ in a flash on a daring dash
Down a waterfall so rapid that you go splish-splash
Splash Mountain, Zip-a-dee-doo-dah
Splash Mountain, Zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my.. zip zip zip zip zip zip
Wonderful day, zip, splish splash
Plenty of sunshine. Zip. Splish splash
Heading my way…zip zip zip zip zip zip
I wish I could say this was the first time I had come across this video but sadly it’s resurfaced so many times that I just couldn’t say no to writing about it. Now if anyone wants to rap along and send us the video, that will at least result in my night of no sleep being worthwhile.
This is classic Michael Eisner moment and as much as this video is super cringy, I do miss the days of opening Disney Parks attractions in the likes of Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom with this kind of crazy. Imagine walking into Walt Disney World after months of closures to see this happening in place of the opening show at Magic Kingdom.
