Wait just one second here… You mean to tell me that the Walt Disney Corporation was designed to manipulate children into buying their products?! I’m sorry, but I have known for many years that at the core of Disney was pure evil. I don’t know anyone who didn’t think Lucifer had a hand in creating the “It’s a Small World” ride in Orlando. I’m not shocked at the use of psychologists to attract their target audience. As a matter of fact, I applaud them for it. They simply took the next logical step in marketing their product. Children are impulse buyers with almost unending funds (mommy and daddy). It was only a matter of time until someone decided to throw that book of ethics out of the window, so why are you surprised that it was the inventors of duck who struggles with Turrets? The truth is that it is unsettling, scary, and despicable, but let’s call it what it is from a pure marketing point of view— genius!
