    'Ho White and the Seven Dwarves' Beer Advert Angers Disney

    The x-rated advertisement, for Jamieson's Raspberry Ale, depicts the fairytale heroine blowing smoke rings while lying in bed with seven semi-clad dwarves.

    In this Disney dystopia, Snow White has been renamed "Ho White", while the loveable dwarves Sleepy, Happy and Doc are rebranded Filthy, Smarmy and Randy - supposedly to represent different types of drinkers.

    Campaign creators The Foundry claimed the idea was to convince Australian drinkers that the fruit-flavoured beer was "anything but sweet".

    However, the advertisement has reportedly angered Disney, the entertainment giant which licenses Snow White.

    The Foundry said it had had "a little bit of contact" with Disney over the issue, according to Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper.

    The Foundry's website had featured pictures of "Ho White" but links to the campaign appeared to have been disabled and the campaign's official website, anythingbutsweet.com, could not be accessed.

    Australia's Food Week website speculated that this may be due to a copyright infringement.

    Disney, which released the famous animated Snow White feature in 1937, was not immediately available for comment.

    However, it is unlikely that the company, which runs the family-friendly Disney theme parks and is known for its cartoon feature films aimed at children, would agree to Snow White's image being used to sell beer.

    'Ho White'. How original. Not.

    Disney is in no place to complain, the company has defiled folk tales and sacrileged against sacred myths throughout its existence.

    In 1959's "Sleeping Beauty", the prince tells his father that it is the 14th century now and that he should go with the times. Forward to the 1990s and we are treated with such gems as "Hercules" with a Brooklyn taxi driver as Hercules' satyr sidekick and a choir of Negro muses singing their Negro songs.

    The currently playing "Princess and the Frog" seems like an Afro-feminist parody of Der Froschkönig oder der eiserne Heinrich.

    What Disney is doing there is not so much the product of a recent infestation with dadaist Negro culture, it is a persistent pattern to distort the significance of foreign cultural heritage for American sensibilities. As such, it is part of a determined drive toward a globalised culture stripped of all meaning and enriched with trivia and nonsense.

    Walt himself kept the trashing of the original stories to a minimum while he was alive, and though the Sleeping Beauty quote was mirroring the degeneration that had already begun in society at large, it was a totally unnecessary and pathetic attempt to appear "hip" to the younger audience. Things have gotten progressively worse, with african-themed films featuring negritude, even if it was only through animated characters. Typically, they try to make characters voiced by negroes the "hippest" and have them sing in negrified ways. For example, the crab in The Little Mermaid. Whether this is an agenda or a conspiracy is immaterial. The result is impressionable children whose world view is negrified at a very young age.

    Disney keeps on complaining about all types of things. Especially copyright issues. Talking of which, did they ask the successors of the Brothers Grimm when they usurped Snow White for their own ends, anyway.

    Like Hauke already stressed, they keep on appropriating our folk tales and give them a new touch. In the last few years, the trend has been to feature more and more characters we'd perceive as "from a migrational background". But the themes and to some extent the storyline is oft based on an old storyline, best example again as Hauke has stressed The Princess and the Frog

    That's the sad thing. The whole world hates us and calls us racist. But they still want our cultural heritage for themselves, especially our folkloristic aspects. You find that sentiment closer to home as well, attend a Polish Heathen Gathering and find that more are worshipping Odin than Svarog. It's curious ... they hate us, and we're responsible for all the evil of all the world, but they still open up all of our heritage for everyone. It's ridiculous, if I try enough, will I be cast as White Martin Luther King, Jr.?
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
