Sorry, Grumpy, Grumpy Cat is not impressed.
The Internet’s favorite feline stopped by the Magic Kingdom and went face to grumpy face with Grumpy, one of the seven dwarfs from Snow White. Hopefully, Grumpy the dwarf didn’t take it too personally, although we suspect he did.
The brown-and-white kitty, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, and Ridiculously Photogenic Guy toured Disneyland along with about two dozen other Internet stars as part of a new marketing push by Disney. Dubbed Disney Side, the campaign attempts to harness the power of social media to promote the theme parks by bringing in some of the Internet’s favorite denizens to help.
Along with Grumpy Cat, Internet superstars like “How to Be a Dad” blogger Charlie Capen, video personality Mark Malkoff, “CuteGirlsHairstyles” YouTube star Mindy McKnight and stop-motion Vine animator Ian Padgham, were invited to the park to help garner attention and hopefully drive traffic to Disney’s digital content including YouTube shows, Vine shorts, songs and photography. According to the LA Times, the 24 social media superstars invited to the event by Disney have a combined fan following of 30 million and have generated an estimated 2 billion views online.
Not that any of that impresses Grumpy Cat.
