40 Reasons Disney is Pop Culture's Heavyweight Champion

— September 17, 2008 — Pop Culture
Whether you love Disney, like the Disney Guy, or hate Disney, like Megan Fox does, one thing’s for certain: that mouse and his cartoon cronies sure know how to make headlines.

Between innovations in technology, creative branding, eye-popping product placement, teen star power, and longevity, Disney pervades every facet of pop culture.

Disney’s clout is such that when we spot a commercial or amusement park that has shades of Disney inspiration, we spot it immediately--even if Disney hasn’t officially endorsed the product. These 40 Disney or Disney-inspired trends expose the cultural juggernaut that is the House of Mouse.
