No Diving

More Disney embarrassment.

The underwear, made for ‘tween girls, invited the the reader to ”Dive In” and was, according to company officials, themed for a swimming pool scene from the Disney Channel hit movie,”High School Musical 2.”

Ahh to have been in that product brainstorming session!

I don't think brains were actively involved at any point in the production process. The company does demonstrate the ability to comprehend the obvious after it has been pointed out to them.

“Unfortunately, an oversight was made and the text on the underwear was used out context,” Disney said in a statement. “This product will not be part of any forthcoming collections and the remaining product has been removed from shelves.”

I'm struggling to think of an appropriate context.
