Disney Parodies Double Rainbow Guy For The Kids (?)

Advertising Executive 1: We’ve got to find a new way to appeal to the youth of today. What are they into?
Advertising Executive 2: SEXTing.
Advertising Executive 1: That might not work for Disney. What else?
Advertising Executive 2: Funny YouTubes!
Advertising Executive 1: Go on.
Advertising Executive 2: Let’s make a parody of a funny YouTube!
Advertising Executive 1: This is good. Let’s keep thinking about this.
Advertising Executive 2: How about that one video where the MMA fighter with an obvious marijuana habit has a nervous breakdown in the woods.
Advertising Executive 1: Is that something the kids will relate to?
Advertising Executive 2: It doesn’t matter! They’re kids! It’s on the Internet!
Advertising Executive 1: So let me get this straight, in order to promote Tangled, the new Walt Disney update of the Rapunzel fairy tale, which is already irreverent to the point of being nonsensical, and doesn’t seem like something that would appeal to anyone, even a child with no discernible taste, we’re going to make a parody of a viral video that is not particularly interesting to children since it doesn’t feature anyone falling down or farting, and is actually just three minutes of shaky nature footage with a grown man crying in the background, a video that bears absolutely NO relation in either theme or tone to the movie we are trying to promote?
Advertising Executive 2: Exactly.

Advertising Executive 1: Good work.
Advertising Executive 2: Thank you. More cocaine?
