We're in Love With the Male Version of Ariel from 'The Little Mermaid'

Animator Mark Scarnander gender-bent the classic Disney film's "Part of Your World" scene, and it is so swoon-worthy!!

Disney's 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid is an absolute classic that tells the story of a beloved mermaid named Ariel who just wants to explore the world beyond her bubble—but what if the gender roles in the film were swapped, and instead of being a mermaid princess, Ariel was a prince who also just wanted to explore the surface for himself?

That's what artist and animator Mark Scarnander did in a recent video where he created the male version of Ariel, and seriously, the results are swoon-worthy! 

Using a cover of the song by male singer Mike Zubi, Scarnander recreated the film's iconic "Part of Your World" scene in his gender-bent style, and we've seriously been playing it on repeat non-stop. Male Ariel is an absolute, red-headed snacc, and we're not ashamed to admit it!

And can you really blame us for loving him?!? Just LOOK at him!

I know we've only just met, but I would literally do anything for male Ariel!!!
