What child doesn’t have the introduction of Disney’s The Lion King burned into their memory? The movie is one of Disney‘s most famous feature films, and the power opening scene, where the entire jungle kingdom bows to their new royal prince Simba, is one of their most iconic.
Artist Simone Rovellini thought it was due time someone spoofed the popular intro. Being a fan of darker humor, he edited the classic moment when Rafiki lifts Simba up into the air in front of the entire jungle.
Instead of holding the new prince of the jungle up high, viewers are shocked to see Rafiki throw Simba off of Pride Rock. But it seems the Web appreciates dark humor as the new clip is now going viral.
