so many emotions went into that last gif and he just stopped on
"why yes hello sir"
Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.
Can we also talk about how Tracy is absolutely awesome because she refuses to conform to an idea of beauty and is very much proud of herself and her looks? Can we talk about how Tracy fights the good fight, immediately befriends the black kids at school without a second thought, really, in a time where segregation was very much still a thing? Can we talk about how even when her dream to dance on the Corny Collins Show comes true and she has fame and money and everything she could ever want, she STILL fights the good fight and doesn’t surrender even when she risks PRISON? Can we talk about how Tracy is flawless and should be everyone’s role model?
Also, Link. LINK. I love Link to bits don’t even talk to me about Link ugh the feels. He’s just such a genuinely good guy, respecting people of color and being nice to Tracy who was a social outcast and dumping Amber for being a jerk even though that could jeopardize his career and supporting Tracy even when she was risking jail - PLUS PLS HIM SINGING TO HER PHOTO AND KISSING IT IS JUST HILARIOUS HE’S PERF ADMIT IT.
And Motormouth Maybelle! And Corny Collins! And Penny and Seaweed being total sweethearts! And Edna and Wilbur being awesome! Just so much awesomeness going on 10/10 would recommend!
this bearded fellow is mighty pretty
I just didn’t want to be the only person on tumblr without this on my tumblr.
