When you think back to your childhood, especially the movies that made your little eyes go wide, you think Disney.
Even the toughest, most burly Alpha Male has fond memories of a Walt Disney feature – and Mickey and the gang, of course. They were cute, innocent and pure, just as Uncle Walt had envisioned – when he wasn’t hating Jews, that is.
Okay, so the Disney legacy has a few rough spots, I concede that point, but they’re responsible for creating some of the finest animated characters on the planet. I don’t think anyone can argue that point, right?
Well, maybe now they can…
Barneys New York is partnering with The House of Mouse for their festive holiday campaign – yes, its almost that time of year already – extravaganza. Photos and even a short film picture iconic characters like Daisy Duck walking the runway in designer clothing, but there have been a few tweaks added to our beloved friends – to say the least.
Just think what would happen if Vivid Video won the licensing rights to Disney’s character catalog and you’re on the right track… I don’t know what they had in mind with this look, but the folks at Barney’s need to take a cold shower.
I can only imagine the path my childhood would have taken had I been watching a Jenna Jameson/Daisy Duck hybrid for years. I know one thing, I would have gotten more action… Nah, who am I kidding?
But most kids would have. Bottom line: somebody messed up here – Big Time. I can’t wait to see their Valentine’s day campaign…
