The worst thing in the world to tour Canberra maccas

By johnboy 21 January 2013 35

CityNews have the horrifying news that a “1D World” truck will be dragging One Direction merch around Canberra McDonalds outlets later in the week.

It’s nice that even though the over gelled tossers can’t be arsed bringing their show to town they still want to fleece the kids.

Above is a video that’s had a ludicrous 38 million views for those who haven’t heard the fuss.

Just checked the vid. Crime against humanity.

Seriously, that’s some repugnant sh!t. People have to make a living, but lines need to be drawn.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to see if One Direction is popular in Bali. Or at least if there are cheap T-shirts to sell to tourists. (Somehow I think there may be non-official merc.)

Let’s face it folks, there is a market out there to be exploited, and there will always be someone to take advantage of the hormone driven stupidity of 13 year old girls.

There was a grumpy meme popped up on 4Chan last week, along the lines of “I fell down the stairs while carrying a guitar and accidentally wrote a One Direction song”.

This might have been funny if it were close to the truth. The vast majority of successful contemporary music (including tween pop) is strategically planned, micromanaged and heavily over-produced.

Falling down the stairs with a keyboard and an angry cat might produce a good brostep track though!

Lot of people sure took that Beatles bait.

Indeed they did.

And they repaid that with some of the greatest pop music ever, possibly, in some people’s view, the greatest.

Not sure I can see One Direction doing that 🙂

Me neither.

Well actually, you must remember them because you mentioned them in your post.

The Beatles sold two million songs on iTunes within two weeks after their debut on the site in 2011. So even the Now Generation likes them. The Monkees have sold over three million copies of their box set Music Box – released after Davy Jones’s death last year – on CD and iTunes.

Both Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys reunited last year for reunion tours which were hugely successful.
