Pocahontas Gets a Makeover in New Video Mash-Up

If only the real thing were just as good.

This is one dope mashup. Courtesy of Latoya Peterson over on Racialicious, here’s a clever splice of the classic Disney flick Pocahontas and Adriel Luis’ spoken word poem Slip of the Tongue.

We first spotted the mash-up on Sociological Images, where a student, Samantha Figueroa, did the editing for a class project. The task was to combine two loosely related art forms in order to produce an inspirational and critical piece.

Humorous, informative and fast-paced, the manipulated visuals compliment Luis’ poem so well that you sort of wished the actual Disney film was just as good.
