Honest Trailer For 'Little Mermaid' Ruins Childhood Memories For Everyone

"The Little Mermaid" turned 25 this week, and while many of us look back on the Disney classic with a fond nostalgia, Screen Junkies's Honest Trailer reveals what the movie is really about. Set in a "whimsically fascist" underwater kingdom, "The Little Mermaid" actually follows a "half-naked 15-year-old" who falls in love with a man in order to teach young girls that, yes, the goal in life is to be skinny and look pretty.

That's not all "The Little Mermaid" contributed to your youth, though. There was also the classic "Dumb Mermaid Song" -- you know, the one where Ariel literally has no idea what random objects are. Watch the honest trailer above and be prepared to have all your childhood joy stolen from you like poor Ariel's vocal cords.
