The Witches of Hocus Pocus Are Down on Their Luck in the Trailer for Hocus Broke-us

Still from YouTube

Todrick Hall, the hyper-talented singer, comedian, and YouTube sensation, has done some of his best work when riffing on beloved movies like Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and Mean Girls. That trend continues with Hocus Broke-us, his spoof sequel of Hocus Pocus that replaces Sanderson sisters Winnie, Mary, and Sarah with the “straight outta Salem” coven of Kelly, Michelle, and Seyoncé.

The mock trailer features Hall’s usual pairing of intricate production design and off-kilter humor; come for the club version of “I Put a Spell on You,” stay for the pitch-perfect Fetty Wap joke.
