Remember during the “commercials” on Disney Channel when your fav Disney stars would intro themselves and then use their magic Disney wand to air draw some giant Mickey mouse ears?
But take away the fancy music and editing, and things got a lot more awkward. We know this thanks to a whole slew of behind-the-scenes found footage that’s making the rounds on the internet.
These raw clips feature classic stars like Hillary Duff and Raven Symone acting out the script (which traditionally involved the actor introducing themselves, the show they work on, and drawing Mickey Mouse ears with a magic wand) over and over again until they basically lose their minds.
For instance, note the look Raven gives the director at 1:21 when he asks her to do it “one more” time.

While Hillary Duff managed to nail the script, the moments in between are straight up painful to watch.

On the other hand, America Ferrera looks like she’s having a lot of fun.

Then there’s Miranda Sanchez, who plays Lalaine in Lizzy McGuire, who seems to have no idea what Mickey Mouse ears actually look like.

Unfortunately, it seems some of the videos, which Buzzfeed reports were originally uploaded to YouTube by the editing company who made them, have been taken down. But don’t worry, you can still watch the full thread of videos in all their cringe-y glory on Twitter right here.
