Disney's gettin' up?!!!

You guys have to check out this project that Disney (yes Disney) put together.
It's called Block28 . They took a street , lowbrow, graph style to their characters.
It's actually quite illmatic! This show is hot and the store is too...

Man it's crazy how the mainstream catches a clue after a long amount of time.
This got me fired up cause it's a vision for what we're doing.

i have mixed feelings about disney but i guess thats cool that they're trying to stay alive in a society where kids are growing up watching family guy and other shit like that.

Funny... I just read an interview with Sket One, who's done a lot of toys for kidrobot, and one of the questions was about the ad industry in america... here's what he said:

"I’m kind of excited actually, because my age group is starting to get in the position of being able to call the shots on advertisements and you’re starting to hear cool music and see cool imagery, and out of the box kind of stuff. Coke has been messing around with toys. Some people think it’s crap because they’re messing with the subculture, but if you look at the big picture, you’ll see that they aren’t just corporate guys, they’re guys like us who have finally gotten to that level and are actually starting to filter some of their culture in to the advertising. I think that’s just amazing. I work in an ad agency full time, that’s what I do. I work in a marketing firm. I sit around a table and listen to guys even 15 years older than me. It’s annoying, they don’t get it."
