Disney Puts Out Joy Division-Inspired Mickey Tee, Then Takes It Down Immediately

Disney Puts Out Joy Division-Inspired Mickey Tee, Then Takes It Down Immediately

Joy Division's album artwork for Unknown Pleasures by Peter Saville is iconic, but it's odd that the cover graphic made its way on to a Disney T-shirt. The tee features the famous pulsar wave image with the even more famous Mickey Mouse image embedded in it.

The Internet has been going crazy, calling Disney out for the "mistake" (Joy Division's name comes from a prostitution wing of the Nazi concentration camps). Disney has since pulled the product, but if you want to get your hands on one, the top eBay bid goes for $255. The surviving members of Joy Division say they had no knowledge of said T-shirt distribution. [Pitchfork]
