We’re all guilty of making mistakes and blunders, and although we each strive for perfection, human error is simply inevitable. In the end, the most we can do (besides pay extra attention) is hope that our mistakes don’t cause havoc-wreaking consequences.
However, when you work for a company as influential as the Walt Disney Company, any teeny tiny mistake can threaten credibility. Unfortunately, this sign is absolutely riddled with teeny tiny errors.
While we weren’t paying attention (or watching helplessly), the Walt Disney Company grew into an empire.
Disney media (whether it’s Disney animation or a live-action project) is everywhere, and the company is buying smaller entertainment companies left and right. As a result, the Walt Disney Company has become more influential than ever.
And just in time for the company’s 100th-anniversary celebration, Disney100.
To celebrate Disney100, the Walt Disney Company has released all sorts of new Disney entertainment and merchandise, and the Disney Parks are undergoing different changes to reflect the occasion.
New shows are being performed, new snacks are being offered, and new signs are being hung up.
However, one sign, in particular, is absolutely riddled with simple mistakes, and they have not gone unnoticed by the general public.
One Guest recently posted a picture of this sign onto R/Facepalm, a Reddit community dedicated to showcasing “the stupidity of individuals online and IRL.”
Immediately, people began noticing and pointing out a myriad of different errors.
One Reddit user joked, “Disney is older than I thought” in response to the lack of punctuation. The sign should read “Disney100: Decades” with a colon, but due to the lack of a colon, it seems like the sign is advertising 100 decades of Disney instead of just 10.
Another pointed out the error of adding apostrophes to each decade, writing: “Those apostrophes are making me anxious.”
One of the most scathing critiques, however, reads, “One of the largest media companies in the world paid someone for that.”
If you ever feel self-conscious about your work, just remember that even the Walt Disney Company makes mistakes from time to time.
