Hollywood Reporter calls "serious regrets" about allowing the magazine to use the characters in a photo shoot for a summer issue. Apparently, what they expected was a more "reverential treatment of [their] most valuable characters", one akin to the Harper's Bazaar integration of Simpsons characters clad in Chanel, Versace, et al prior to the release of The Simpsons Movie. If I were expecting that, yeah, I'd be disappointed too. What they got was ladies in lingerie leaning up against Donkey, some awful Photoshop integration, and a whole lot of super tacky nonsense. More embarrassing for Dreamworks or Vman? I can't decide. It's a "fashion" equivalent of a photo shoot conducted standing next to cardboard cutouts aimed at 8-year olds. WTFs abound. Pretty sad.
