We fear the Coca-Cola ad is only the beginning.
What’s that? A cheery instrumental version of Chim Chim Chiree is coming from your TV? It must be a new commercial for Walt Disney World! Except it’s not — it’s an ad for Coca-Cola. And then you hear Bear Necessities… in an ad for Door Dash? What’s going on?
Your ears do not deceive you — you actually have heard Disney songs popping up in non-Disney places. Which means one thing: Disney CEO Bob “Bob” Chapek is adding to his money-grubbing ways by ca$hing in on Disney’s vast, once-untouchable song library. Sigh.
We really don’t want to give Chapek any ideas, but at the same time, there are plenty of Disney songs that could be used to sell non-Disney products. Here’s what we predict:
A Part of Your World
Trashing the Camp
You’ll Be in My Heart
Beto O’Rourke for Texas Governor campaign.
I’ll Make a Man Out of You
Nowhere to Go But Up
Look Out for Mister Stork
it’s a small world
Any international airline.
When I See an Elephant Fly
The Republican Party.
Let It Go
The Congressional January 6th Commission.
