What happens when you challenge Gaston, the vain villain from Beauty And The Beast, to a push-up contest? You lose, obviously!
Walt Disney World guest Blake Platt learnt that the hard way, as seen in this video recorded at the Florida theme park’s Fantasyland by his brother. The video immediately went viral, garnering 4,734,694 views (and counting) since it was uploaded on YouTube on January 2.
Well, Gaston did sing about having biceps to spare and eating five dozen of eggs in the 1991 Disney film.
In the video’s description, Blake said:
When my brother and I go to the Disney parks (which we love), one of our goals every time we enter is to make someone’s day, even if it’s just one person. Hopefully we’ve been able to do that on a little larger scale; and, hopefully again, in a way of which Walt would be proud.
This isn’t the first time the guy playing Gaston has been the center of attention. Last November, he got schooled by a little girl, Isabella, who told him he’s not gonna marry Belle and the Beast is gonna “beat” him.
It’s not easy being a villain, but I gotta hand it to this guy for staying true to his character.
