Gellar was decked out in the full Cinderella formal and tiara with her stepsisters swaying to the beat for back up as she faced her opponent, Whitney Avalon, and her cronies, Pocahontas and Little Red Riding Hood.
Sarah, or “Cindy” as she calls herself in the video, starts off by touting the toughness of her crew, referring to the point in the story of Cinderella in which the stepsisters cut off their own toes in an effort to squeeze into the coveted glass slipper.
Whitney’s (or Belle’s) rebuttal is even more comical as Pocahontas and Red Riding Hood go full on back up rapper, “What’s my name? (Belle!) What’s it mean? (Beauty!) I’m the perfect combination of brains and beauty!” Avalon’s Belle then goes into mocking Gellar’s Cinderella and her lack of intelligence, “Fear the nerdy wordy princess, ’cause I’m throwing more shade than the willow tree growing on your dead mother’s grave!” Gellar’s shocked face that Avalon went there with a mama joke is hilarious.
Gellar and Avalon did a fantastic job combining the nostalgia of the classic Disney cartoons with just enough inappropriate adult humor to make it laugh out loud enjoyable.
Watch it here:
Sarah Michelle Gellar has been married to Freddie Prinze Jr. since 2002. The couple has two children. Gellar shared a picture on Instagram yesterday of her daughter meeting “Belle” at the shooting of the rap battle video. Sarah Michelle most recently appeared in the one season comedy, The Crazy Ones, with Robin Williams.
Though she’s done substantial voiceover work and starred as Daphne in the two live action Scooby Doo films, Sarah Michelle Gellar is probably best known for her role as Buffy in the cult classic TV series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Whitney Avalon is an actress, singer, and writer. She is best known for her work in the Disney Princess Rap Battle series, having previously played Mary Poppins and Snow White.
Avalon and Gellar have taken the battle to Twitter and Facebook and are asking fans to tweet #TeamCindy or #TeamBelle to help declare a winner. On the plus side, it’s clear that Sarah Michelle is wearing the blue dress while Whitney has on the gold one, so there is no need to argue over what color the dress is. As for the winner of the rap, tell us what you think! Who rhythmed and rhymed best, Cinderella (Gellar) or Belle (Avalon)?
