Mickey Mouse Unknown Pleasures T-Shirt

Burbank, California: Disney, [2012]. 100% cotton t-shirt. U.S. size S. Very good. Item #6960

Mickey Mouse Unknown Pleasures t-shirt that appeared early in January 2012 and was quickly discontinued later in the month.

Perhaps the piece of merch that finally divorced the pulsar radio diagram from the allegiances it originally connoted (isolation, depression, modernism, romanticism, etc). Writer Jenn Pelly managed in brief time to write an ironic protest only two days before then covering Disney’s decision to pull it:

“Does Disney know that the singer hanged himself?! Do they know where the name “Joy Division” comes from?! Do they know how stupid this guy looks wearing this T-shirt?”.
