Amy Schumer wins again with this sketch about what it would really be like to be a Disney princess. You think being a “rancid peasant girl” who discovers she’s actually a princess and is swept away to marry the prince would be the absolute greatest thing to ever happen, but it turns out to be otherwise.
Amy, the “rancid peasant girl” in question, meets royal attache Tim Gunn. Tim whisks her away to her castle, where she gets a brand new fancy ball gown and lots of happy cartoon birds. It’s basically a dream come to true.
Except, she has to marry her creepy cousin because the family needs to keep the bloodline going.
“Yeah, but that doesn’t seem cool,” Amy accurately notices. No, Princess Amy, it isn’t cool at all and neither is how most women were treated throughout history. Think less chirpy happy birds and more forced marriages and beheadings.
