Who did this? Tweep recreates epic ’Lion King’ fight scene using viral video
The final showdown between Mufasa and Scar in “The Lion King” will go down in film history as one of the best.
It’s a fight scene that’s been recreated and has spawned a number of parodies over the years.
So imagine our surprise when we came across a video on Twitter that re-imaged the epic battle using video footage of two cats fighting in the Dominican Republic last week?
The 10-second video – which was originally posted on Facebook on Thursday – shows the two cats viciously fighting each other on the roof of a one-story building, Fox News reported.
One of the cats rolls partly off the ledge, using its front two paws to hang on to the roof.
Lucky for him, he didn’t suffer the same demise as Mufasa but fell instead on to the ledge below.
The video, which has since gone viral, was then picked up by Twitter user @xjuanwilson, who put a “Lion King” spin on it.
