Normally, I am a big fan of Weird “Al” Yankovic, but today he released a music video for the new song “Skipper Dan” that has changed my mind and opinion forever. Just look at this:
Clearly this is supposed to be Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise attraction. Oh, Al tried to be clever by having the boat traveling in the wrong direction, putting the scene on an island, and getting everyone’s clothing (and he species of rhino) wrong, but that does not save him from committing a blatant potential violation!
Now try this additionally blatant image on for size (those particularly sensitive to violations of corporate properties may want to avert their eyes):
Again, clearly this is a Jungle Cruise captain standing with a guest and his two albino children — one of whom has a trademark-violating hat, and the other sporting and intellectual-rights-abusing balloon!
Oh, Al, how could you have done such a thing??? I have not been so upset since I heard “Walt” (Weird’s parody of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” — “All in all it’s just another theme park by Walt,” etc.)
