    I will, however, concede that I don't think that it is a very effective commercial for anyone that has never ridden the Jungle Cruise, but to a repeat guest, I think it's well done and funny.

    Remember it was all started by a mouse...a cartoon character that was allowed to have a "life force".

They could rip out the entire MK tomorrow and replace it with a duplicate of DCA 1.0 and my life would not be noticeably altered.

    Regardless of the concept, or the subject, it is a dumb commercial.

    Bad script.

    No laughs.

    No urge to go to Disneyland after having seen it.

    Ad agency fail.

    That's my only point here. The Jungle Cruise itself is not worth getting one's panties in a bunch over. Poke fun all you'd like. The skippers do.
