And though many people immediately suggested Idris Elba play Ariel’s father, King Triton…

…Terry Crews has a different idea:

🧜🏾‍♂️ SINGING AUDITION! 🎶 under the sea! under the sea! my pecs are better, my triton is bigger, take it from me! need a refresher? watch @AGT! 🔱🧜🏾‍♂️

Yes, he did photoshop in bubbles and a trident. (THIS IS THE INITIATIVE WE SHOULD ALL BE TAKING.)

Here’s hoping Terry Crews gets in on some of that Little Mermaid action!
