Disney has halted sales of a Mickey Mouse shirt after its comparisons to Joy Division drew web attention.
The shirt, which presented a silhouette of the iconic cartoon character’s head filled with raised black-and-white lines, echoed the cover of the post-punk band’s 1979 album “Unknown Pleasures.” That album’s own cover image, representing readings from the first pulsar discovery, was borrowed from an astronomy encyclopedia.
“Inspired by the iconic sleeve of Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ album, this Waves Mickey Mouse Tee incorporates Mickey’s image within the graphic of the pulse of a star. That’s appropriate given few stars have made bigger waves than Mickey!” this listing, now removed, read.
From the Metro Toronto free paper:
A superstar rapper and his signature owl have ruffled the feathers of the city’s legal eagles.
Drake, one of Toronto’s most famous and proud cultural ambassadors, failed to ask permission to use a modified version of the official city logo on a Gardiner Expressway billboard promoting his smash-hit new album, a city spokesperson says.
The billboard, located at Dufferin St. and Springhurst Ave., features the word “Toronto” in the distinctive style of the logo. And in the spot on the logo where the image of City Hall is located, to the left of the “Toronto,” the billboard substitutes the owl emblem of Drake’s personal brand, October’s Very Own.
