I WILL DO MY LEVEL BEST TO KEEP YOU FROM HUMMING THE SONG ALL DAY, BUT IF YOU CLICK ON THE VIDEO IN THE SECOND LINK, IT WILL BURROW ITSELF INTO YOUR SKULL: The popular "shared cultural understanding" boat ride at Disneyland has been renovated, adding in 29 Disney/Pixar characters and axing the original rainforest room. Even in advance, folks were livid:
One of the most egregious and downright disgusting decisions in Disney theme park history ... Cute as they may be, Belle, Mickey, Stitch or Nemo have nothing to do with selling the core values of UNICEF, the show’s original partner. Their appearance not only trivializes the central theme but more disturbingly seems to emphasize global brand marketing and franchising above all else.
But go ahead, if you dare, and hop on the boat. Just don't get violent, and be patient until the Hall of Presidents adds one more.
