A New Take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
Well, folks, Disney is mad at this new 'spin' on the 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarves' fairy tale.
I personally think Disney is angry because a piece of its property is being reinterpreted sans its approval. Well, Disney, the thing is most people rather approve of satirical humor, you know, the kind we're bound to encounter daily in real life.
How dare people reinvent pre-existing myths, right? Well, I don't know where we would be without encouraging the instinct that the talented have to reinterpret literature, but Disney apparently, does not think so. As I look at this ad, I can't help but think of Bertolt Brecht, the master 'adaptor' of other folks' work.
