Disney Acts Over 'Sex' Video

I’m sure the actual video featured in this little story is funny too, but reading about it yesterday in the sometimes-earnest Scotsman newspaper – especially the matter-of-fact style of writing in the last paragraph – made me laugh out loud in the middle of a train journey to Glasgow causing concerned parents to tutt and hold their precious children a little bit closer to protect them from “weird scary beardy man”.

The Walt Disney Company yesterday said it took “appropriate action” against employees at its Paris theme park who were caught simulating sex while dressed as Disney characters in a digital video that has received wide attention on the internet.

Disney would not say whether it had dismissed the costumed employees featured in the grainy video, which appears to have been shot with a hidden camera at a backstage dressing room at Disneyland Resort Paris. “The behaviour shown is unacceptable and inexcusable,” a statement said. “The video was taken in the backstage area not accessible to guests. Appropriate action has been taken to deal with the cast members involved.”

The video shows Minnie Mouse being grabbed by Goofy and then by a giant snowman.

Ya gotta watch out for Goofy. I think it's the laugh, pretty diabolical.
