"Counting Stars" by One Republic is getting a new twist for Halloween after Scar from The Lion King was named the scariest according to "Oh My Disney," a blog.

Outraged, the other villains of Disney remade "Counting Stars" as "Counting Scars" – and became a viral hit on YouTube.

The cast of characters banding together for this music video is diverse, from the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Maleficient from the recent Angelina Jolie movie, Hades in Hercules, Cruella de Vil in 101 Dalmations, Jafar in Aladdin, Ursula in The Little Mermaid and Captain Hook in Peter Pan.

They make some key changes to One Republic's lyrics, especially in the chorus: "Lately I been, I been losing sleep dreaming about how evil I could be. But Villains, I been, I been tryin' hard (hey!). It’s tough to climb the ladder when you're counting Scars."
