Have you heard about the controversial "Electric Holiday" campaign by Barneys New York and Disney? The reason why is sparked some outrage recently is because they depicted Minnie Mouse in a cocktail dress (they elongated her to 5'11''). Critics and opponents felt that it blatantly promotes media stereotypes as thin people being the most beautiful, which in turn promotes eating disorders.
Once I signed the petition on Change.org (http://www.change.org/petitions/barneys … ouse-alone) I asked that "what if" question: what if Barneys and Disney did this campaign differently?
Well, they would have created a parade of Vinylmation figurines decked out in lights a la Spectromagic or Main Street Electrical Parade or promoted character-inspired dresses and other clothes without using actual characters. That's something positive to wonder about in this controversial campaign.
Do you agree that BNY and Disney would have done something different for "Electric Holiday?" If you think the current campaign is promoting unhealthy body image, what would they do differently to make it more neutral to all body sizes?
