The Walt Disney Company has apparently been aiming for a different demographic than usual lately. Earlier this year Disney unveiled the shortly lived T-shirt that worked Mickey Mouse’s face into the cover of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures.
Now there’s a new Mickey Mouse figurine that’s raising a lot of the same eyebrows. That’s it up above and if those sunglasses and that left-handed guitar look familiar, they should. “Grunge Rock Mickey,” as it’s being called, certainly looks an awful lot like Kurt Cobain. Only time will tell if Mickey’s grunge period will outlive his Joy Division phase. [Stereogum]
