Lion King came out in 1994 and has been breaking our hearts over and over again ever since.
But in addition to making us cry every time we hear Simba say, "Dad, wake up" ... it's also succeeded in making us all thirsty for some Simba.
You may have asked yourself, "Is it weird that I'm kinda into this animated lion?"
But I'm here to assure you that it is not weird. It would be weird if you WEREN'T into Simba. Here's why:
Simba grew up real quick. He's what we like to refer to as a "Grade A Hottie."
And as far as brooding goes — Simba does it best.
He's got this ~deep~ side that will melt your heart and make you want to run your fingers through his mane while listening to Bon Iver.
And Simba went through A LOT. But going through all of it just means he developed more compassion.
But he also won't put up with anyone's shit. *Ahem* SCAR.
Simba's the kinda dude that'll hit you with his sensitive side — forehead kisses and songs he wrote about you on his banjo.
And don't even get me started on the sex eyes. Can you feel the love tonight? I don't know, but I'm damn sure I want to.
BREAK ME OFF A PIECE OF SIMBA, AM I RIGHT???
And just when you thought it couldn't possibly get any better.... he surprises you by how damn good he looks wet.
So the thing is, if you're into Simba, you have every reason to be.
Let yourself be attracted to Simba.
Because when Simba gets worked up, you can't help but get worked up right along with him.
