This past week, Terry Crews, who hosts America’s Got Talent, began campaigning to play King Triton on social media.
He started off by posting a picture of what he (and his chiseled bod) would look like as a merman, which seemed to be just a joke—”Ariel’s Dad!! HEAR ME OUT!!” he wrote—until he posted another photo asking fans to hit the like button to support.
And now, he’s presenting Disney with an (un)official audition tape via Twitter with his rendition of “Under the Sea.” In the clip, Crews gives his spin on the well-known tune with some new lyrics “Under the sea / Under the sea / My pecs are better / My Triton is bigger / Take it from me / Need a refresher? / Watch AGT!” he sings, amidst photoshopped bubbles.
🧜🏾♂️ SINGING AUDITION! 🎶
