Disney, We Love You, But Please No More Memes!

To the Internet, not beyond.

Listen Disney, we love you, we really do. You’re the cornerstone of our childhood. You taught us valuable life lessons like don’t give up on your dreams, be kind to others, and check your apples for witchcraft. In our 10-year old minds, you can do no wrong.

When it comes to our present day Internet-savvy selves however, the story is different.

In what was surely a well-intentioned attempt to bring some magic to the World Wide Web, the happiest company on earth has taken a stab at creating their own Disney character memes. The result is a bit cringe-worthy.

Beauty and the Beast

Not really a “meme” so much as a “sentence about the plot of the film.”

Mary Poppins

...Once again, more of a plot point than a meme, but a few extra points because the Internet always loves to see animals in human clothing.

Timon might actually be referencing the Disney meme-generator at this point.

Okay this one is heading in the right direction; there may be hope for this idea yet!

Sigh. Never mind.

You may have strayed a little outside your area of expertise on this one Disney but like they say, “Hakuna Matata.”
