I notice that after a big sports event (Super Bowl, McGuire hitting number 62, etc.), a few days later a commercial will appear with the following sequence:
(Lots of hoopla in background: crowd cheering, cameras flashing, etc.)
ANNOUNCER: Hey Mark McGuire, you’ve just broken the all-time single-season home run record. NOW what are you going to do???
MCGUIRE: I’m going to Disneyworld!
Well by golly I watched the game where McGuire hit #62, and during the ensuing hoopla, he never said a thing about Disneyworld, to anybody (AFAI could tell).
Do athletes actually say this after a big milestone (winning the championship, breaking a record, etc.), or is it some clever editing by Disney?
Do these athletes actually GO to Disneyworld at some point?
Are they paid by Disney, in advance, to say that after the big milestone?
When did this practice get started? I seem to remember seeing old clips of people doing something terrific, being asked what they were going to do, and then saying they were going to Disneyland (prior to 1971, that is. Disneyworld opened in 1971. Before that there was just Disneyland).
