Wear A Mask
Wear a mask, wear a mask... is this really much to ask? Created by Noah Lindquist and Ashley Young, this parody offers a sharp and critical commentary on the millions of Americans who do not wear a mask. It's based on "Be Our Guest" from Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. This video illustrates the social power of parody, which is legally protected under the Copyright Act of 1976.

Parody is an important form of social expressison that reworks the material created by others for a new purpose. This is an example of entertainment propaganda because it is explicitly designed to change people's behavior -- using humor to make them more alert and attentive to the underlying beliefs on a topic.
