“If you kids like Phineas and Ferb you’ll loooooooooove deep drilling!”
#2. Disney and Oil Company Sponsored Ad Campaign to Teach Kids to Love Oil
Last year, Radio Disney went on a 26-stop tour of schools and fairs across Ohio, pumping kids up about the wonderful and fun world of … oil. They played games like building pipelines out of straws and dancing to their favorite teen music while everyone cheered for the precious liquid. The campaign – funded entirely by the Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program – was shut down by Disney after 80,000 parents realized that teaching the next generation to love oil the same way they love SpongeBob probably isn’t the best idea.
