Disney Is Selling a Joy Division Mickey Mouse Shirt

http://pitchfork.com/news/45193-disney-is-selling-a-joy-division-mickey-mouse-shirt/

Disney is now selling a Mickey Mouse T-shirt on its webstore inspired by-- no fucking joke-- Joy Division. (Thanks to WPRB DJ Maria T. Sciarrino for pointing it out.)

The listing on the Disney Store website reads: "Inspired by the iconic sleeve of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures album, this Waves Mickey Mouse Tee incorporates Mickey's image within the graphic of the pulse of a star. That's appropriate given few stars have made bigger waves than Mickey!" The shirt is "created especially for Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort." We are not making this up.

Uhhhhhhhhh.... Does Disney know that the singer of this band hung himself?! Do they know where the name "Joy Division" comes from?!
