Disney’s ‘Tangled’ Viral Video: Healing Hair (Rapunzhair)

As a follow-up to the ‘Smolder by Flynn‘ viral video which spoofed those puzzling perfume/cologne commercials that never seem to make any sense , Walt Disney Animation Studios now takes a look at an equally questionable genre of ads: medications. There’s a tad new footage here and (taken in context), it does offer up a couple of minor spoilers, but overall it’s a very clever take on that brand of commercial. While the faux ad does promote rapunzhair.com towards the end, the site is currently not available.

The 20-foot-high, 10-foot-wide Christmas tree made of 1,200 stuffed Duffy bears was created for the launch of Walt Disney World Resort’s annual Toys for Tots collection drive. For the next few weeks, Walt Disney World Resort cast members will play the role of Santa’s helpers by collecting new toys for the annual toy drive, which will be added to Monday’s donation of 1,200 stuffed Duffy bears from the “Cuddliest Christmas Tree.” The annual toy drive is one of many charitable activities under way at Walt Disney World Resort during the “Season of Sharing” that focuses on improving the lives of local children and their families during the holidays and beyond.

ABC’s ‘Skating With The Stars’ Judges Announced

Dick Button, the man known as the “Voice” of figure skating, Johnny Weir, an Olympian who, at age 26, is the skating world’s most unpredictable star, and Laurieann Gibson, the creative visionary behind Lady GaGa’s choreography, will serve as the judges for ABC’s highly anticipated new series, “Skating with the Stars,” from BBC Worldwide Productions. Weir, Button and Gibson will make their debut as judges on the series’ premiere, Monday, November 22 (9:11-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

On “Skating with the Stars,” six famous faces — Bethenny Frankel, Brandon Mychal Smith, Jonny Moseley, Rebecca Budig, Sean Young and Vince Neil — will take to the ice with their world class skating partners for the first time in front of a live audience on premiere night, as couples perform high-paced ice dancing moves and dazzling figure skating routines. It’s fast and it’s graceful, with the added danger from traveling across the unforgiving ice on blades of steel. The couple with the lowest ranking following the judges’ scores and votes from the public will be sent home the following week.
