Disney Lies

Disney Lies

Not that I should be surprised after the countless “This Is The LAST Time You’ll Ever Be Able To Own This DVD of ‘The Fox and the Hound'” lies that have part of their marketing campaigns since the VHS was invented… But after weeks of announcing that Hanna Montana movie as a “One Week Event!” – a campaign that likely was a big reason for the film’s whopping weekend numbers – the greedy little mouse machine has decided to keep the green rolling.

I understand that from an economic perspective this is obviously the right decision.. but morals, Disney, morals! All these 10 year old girls are going to ask their mommies and/or daddies why the commercials lied to them (or even why mommy and/or daddy lied to them). And perhaps this betrayal will kickstart low-self esteem and trust issues that will eventually lead a whole new generation into prostitution and crack addiction. Just saying, Disney… Do you really need more Montana money?
