As I was walking into work today, I had a startling realization. Usually, when I walk by the Heineken billboard, I always suffer a pang of remorse — and thirst. Today, however, the Heineken “draughtkeg” didn’t stir up regret — but what did give me panic was a billboard closeby: The Radio Disney ad, with the omni-perky Hannah Montana smiling down maniacally, and the cast of High School Musical 2 with their jazz hands. It’s the same feeling I get when I see people walk by the museum with their American Girl Doll bags. Shudder.
At least Barney has fallen from favor.
