Hello to You!

The LEGO Movie's biggest flaw to me was that, by the time the end credits began rolling, I was left very aware that I had just watched a very long toy advertisement. I'm not going to spoil anything, but when the big plot twist is revealed, the entire wonderful film seemed to be one big toy promotion. It also seemed to describe the LEGO play-sets as objects of emotional value, and I hate it when people refer to their products like that without being ironic!

(Wow. 'Refer' is 'refer' backwards. Nice.)

This is where we find a few negative similarities with the My Little Pony: FIM TV show. That too, is an advertisement disguised very well as animated entertainment - and that too has a big following of wonderful idiots who want more and more of these adverts/episodes..! I should know. I'm one of those wonderful idiots.

But back to the title of this journal, "Lego and Hasbro - Best Advertisers Ever?" Maybe. I don't know too much about the LEGO toys but I understand that the film's success has made the video game sell very well, despite the video game being a pile of trash. But then, is the LEGO video game another form of advertisement for the LEGO toys? If so, then does The LEGO Movie video game promote the film or the toys? WHAT IS PROMOTING WHAT HERE?

And as for MLP, well. Ten years ago, My Little Pony dolls didn't seem to sell too well with 20 year old men. Since the show has been released however, there are quite a few 20 year old men hoping to get the latest Rainbow Dash figure with light-up hair. You can't tell me that isn't a success for Hasbro.

But, does this affect the shows? Well, to me it does. I cannot lose the idea since watching The LEGO Movie, that each MLP episode is all about trying to get kids to want stupid toys, and I guess its working. I haven't been enjoying the recent episodes due to this.

Hey, I thought it was a nice idea for a journal. Sue me.
