When I read this,

Disney’s consumer-products division has been flagging since the decline of the character apparel trend in the mid-’90s (Warner Bros. has felt the same pinch on its character wear). Disney hopes that a Mickey full-frontal assault can help the division, though there is no guarantee that consumers have more of an appetite for the mighty Mouse, as evidenced by the division’s poor results.

… I worry that their marketing campaign will indeed cause everyone to want to wear Mickey(R) clothing again and my faith in humanity will again plummet.

The important thing isn’t doing, but knowing how you do it.
