Club Mickey Mouse is Made for You & Me!

There’s been a large break between posts lately and I a very sorry for that. School and work have gotten in the way (Public Speaking will be the death of me), so I haven’t been able to keep updating the site at the pace I’d like to be.

However, during these long breaks I have become totally obsessed with Club Mickey Mouse. Like, really obsessed.

If you aren’t aware, the Mickey Mouse Club brand has returned this year with a social-media-only series entitled Club Mickey Mouse. Instead of a televised 30-minute program with skits and music performances, we just get one music video a week. The production quality is fantastic, so I’m totally fine with it.

While we wait for the release of the song and video, we are treated to a large social media presence, with consistent Instagram Stories and posts on their Instagram and Facebook pages. The whole “season” is lasting 7 weeks and is sponsored by HP, but it doesn’t feel totally forced.

We’ve been treated to 3 music videos thus far. “The Mickey Mouse Club March” was the first, ’cause obvi, and it really took the song and turned it into its own thing. It has a modern feel (with the pastel colors used in the video and the emphasis on dance), while the song itself was rearranged into a late 90s R&B sound that I really dig. The rap at the beginning was a fun touch and the riffs from Mouseketeer Brianna Mazzola are something you would find on TLC’s CrazySexyCool. SO SMOOTH. This has been on repeat for 2 weeks now. It’s so fun.

The second video was the original “Something to Fight For,” an original written and choreographed by the Mouseketeers (which is a reoccurring theme, that the actual teens are doing the choreography, all of it being fantastic). It had an inspirational message with a moody EDM tone that took me a few listens to really get into, as it was not expected, but I’m digging it.

This week, we were treated to a cover of Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”. I hate Jackson 5. Everyone has a song they can’t stand, and for me, it’s anything the group has released. However, what the Club did to the track by making it a duet with some R&B and modern pop flair has made it an instant hit. Sean and Brianna do a fantastic job with the vocals and the video is super fun.

Apparently they are heading to the Disney World this week (Hey Oh My Disney, you need someone to interview them? ‘Cause I am here. I AM AVAILABLE!), so I’m excited to see their upcoming videos from that.

Also, their wardrobe across the board is goals. I’m loving the personal styles they all have and I want all their clothes.

Overall, if you’re not following this modern and fantastic reboot of the pop culture institution…get into it! I need a 2nd season, so I’m going to fully blame you if they don’t return next year, mkay?
