Amongst the contentious topics in the world today, it’s nice to see one of them is certain to unite people of all creeds and colours.
It’s also nice to know it is now possible to start a Disney topic on the EA forum safely without MadameLee turning up to have one of her little turns in it.
Especially when the likes of Dreamerz13 and CoffeFreak4Life aren’t having multiple orgasms over it.
Aimeexoxo wasn’t happy.
CoffeFreak4Life however really screwed over her own case:
It took only ten seconds before one of us punched their monitor screen.
‘Hey, I wear a tie with my T-shirt, aren’t I hilarious?’
The only thing hilarious about this guy is that his voice sounds like his balls never dropped – rather like the penny should have dropped with CoffeFreak4Life that this really wasn’t the person to call as an expert witness:
‘I like “Guardians Of The Galaxy”…’
‘Is it possible that overexpose as well as hype can destroy a good product?’
Erm no – that’s called being pretentious. It’s the old inverted snobbery of geeks, alternative music fans, ‘high art vs low art’ and everyone else wanting to be special little snowflakes objecting to those tiresome masses they despise daring to like something they do.
Evidence for the prosecution – his take on A Christmas Story:
‘Part of that may have to do with that the original charm of the product came from the fact that very few knew about it… “A Christmas Story” used to be something of an underground secret’
Would you be at all surprised to learn that The Lord Of The Rings trilogy comes under similar fire? Or that he’s a Star Wars dork?
And is there really that much Frozen hype out there? No more than there was Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings or anything else that ended up a hit. The reason Frozen does not appear to have dropped off the radar however has more to do with being that good old fashioned phenomena of something people liked.
It’s Disney’s biggest grossing movie of all time, and that it managed it with a fraction of the marketing budget originally allocated to it – especially in comparison to the likes of Toy Story, Pocahontas, The Lion King, etc. may have something to do with the fact it was simply very, very good. You don’t get a swathe of unintended Top 10 singles across the world’s music charts from a bloody kids cartoon by sheer accident unless the public really does like it – just ask Art Garfunkel on his biggest hit coming on the back of a 1979 bunny snuff movie for kids!
But we digress:
Your sequal SweetieKaye wouldn’t happen to be Elsa and Anna visit the Island of Lesbos?
