Disney, in an unusual show of corporate responsibility, has pledged 12,000 Donald Duck floats to the residents of Sri Lanka so that they may be better prepared in the event of another Tsunami.
Jeff Christmas, Chief Operating Officer of Disney, says that the substantial cost of the floats will be covered by the Marketing Department rather than the general operating budget. “In the event of another Tsunami, or even a great flood, what better marketing could we receive? 1000s of endangered citizens being pulled to safely by little floating Donald Ducks, it gives me goose bumps to think about it.”
Rumors that Disney is working with an outside firm to create another Tsunami have not been confirmed or denied.
