Sexy, Naughty, Disney

YouTube has lots of Disney video remixes. Artists take clips from Disney animated films and set them to modern music. I've seen clips using music from Britney Spears, Shakira, Katy Perry and Beyonce Knowles, to name a few.
Here is my favorite of the bunch so far.
It features video of Disney princesses and the song "Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy" by Tata Young.

First video posted to on July 7, 2009.
Suggested rating: PG-13.

The second video, "47 Seconds," is from EscapePodFilms. It's just OK. You might want your 1 minute 36 seconds back afterward.

Here are a few of my favorites.
