For the first time in years, an animated musical Disney film is dominating much of the culture at large: In a rare feat, Frozen reclaimed the top spot at the box office in its sixth week of release, dethroned Beyoncé’s album on the Billboard 200, and has inspired countless fan video parodies and interpretations.
The latest of those tributes comes from members of the popular a capella group Pentatonix, whose previous viral hits include “Evolution of Music” and “Evolution of Beyoncé.” And while Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, and Scott Hoying aren’t performing sans instrumental accompaniment this time around, their medley of songs from the movie still features some lovely harmonizing and plenty of playfulness—complete with props and wigs.
