Whats up danger?

Once more I’ve been feeling the first semester blues. You would think that after 3 years of college I’d have it figured out by now but that’s life. To cope with stress (or perhaps avoid it) I’ve been posting A LOT more videos than normal. Florida pre-paid finally came in so I finally had some overdue money. I put most in savings and allotted myself $100. The next day I receive a text from my mother saying a letter had arrived stating that I was to immediately pay Disney Movie Club $95. So let’s go back two years.

I’m 18, I believe Disney is an honest company, and I learn about the Disney Movie Club. It states that you can get 5 movies for $1 each, then they will send you promos and such in the mail. Makes sense. I skimmed through the legal text and didn’t see anything atrocious so I signed up.

This is the website today, which has since added the “how it works” page which very sneakily hides the conditions at the bottom.

I got my 5 movies. Great. I of course started getting the promotional emails and mail. I was able to unsubscribe from the emails but not the mail. Poor trees. I also found out that you had to respond to EVERY letter they sent or else you’d be auto charged for whatever new movie they were selling. To avoid this I changed the credit card number to a fake one. This worked, but the mail kept coming. I resolved this by changing it to a fake mailing address. It was at this time that I learned that I HAD to buy 5 movies AT FULL PRICE. That was bad for a broke college student. So I did my best to avoid it until the two year contract that I “signed up for” expired, in which they sent a collection agency after me.

Fine. I’ll pay it. Clearly Disney needs the money more than I do. I think its worth stating that Universal makes no such back stabbing offers. You can add this to my Universally Better list (which you can read here)

Today I watched the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse movie, which I had bought prior to this incident, and got more emotional than I probably should of. One song especially resonated with me.

I go hard wit’ it no matter how dark it is
If I’m crazy, I’m on my own
If I’m waitin’, it’s on my throne
If I sound lazy, just ignore my tone
‘Cause I’m always gonna answer when you call my phone
Like, what’s up, danger? (Danger)
Like, what’s up, danger?
