From “Please” To “Cheeseburger:” Watch This Supercut of Movie Characters Figuring Out “The Magic Word”
There are a lot of magical words out there. If you’re a magician, you have your classic abracadabras and alakazams. If you’re in an elementary class, your magic word might be “please,” and if you’re Jeff Goldblum in The Fly, it might be “cheeseburger.”
Any word can be magic if you want it to be, which is the main takeaway from this supercut of “magic words” from 45 movies by Andy Schneider and Jonathan Britnell of Burger Fiction. From literal magic words like Cinderella‘s “Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo” to the teasing of Are We There Yet?, the video gives us a whole inventory of magical phrases. The video also hilariously pairs movies together with moves like putting Mary Poppins Quits with Kristen Bell right after Mary Poppins and including a montage of different “open sesame” scenes.
If there’s not enough literal magic or dying in this video, you should also check out this supercut of all the Harry Potter spells in alphabetical order! What’s your favorite magical word? I’m between “please” and “supercalifragilisticexpiali-bullshit.”
