The irony of WALL*E

A movie touching on the evils of consumerism, materialism and excess put out by..... Disney.
Disney, the marketing giant. The company that licenses cups, towels, toys, bedsheets and BEDS, cake molds, balloons, underwear, pajamas, cereal, fruit snacks just to name a few products, to promote their movies.

Don't get me wrong, WALL*E was a wonderful film, one of Pixar's best, if not the best in my opinion, but I can't be the only one who saw the irony of it all.
