Rockstarism #221 – Disney Cars DVD Rockstarisms

#221 Rockstar walks by after using the bathroom, while I'm stuck to electric breast pump... Me: Come here darling, I want to tell you something. Rockstar comes over, but... Rockstar: <urgently, nodding earnestly> Not possible to pause my (Cars) DVD, you know? Awhile later..... Rockstar: What's Rust-eze and Dinoco (the two main sponsors in Disney's Cars)?

Me: Those are sponsors. Sponsors are companies who want to sell some products or services. When you're good at something, sponsors want you to use their products, hoping that if others see you using their stuff and want to be good at that something just like you, they'll use the same stuff too. They might even give you lotsa free stuff hoping you'd use it...

Rockstar: <not taking eyes away from screen> O-Kay..... Me: What did I just say? Rockstar: When you're good at something, sponsors want you to use more drugs.

Not a Rockstar public service message.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Oooops! 😀 The word products do sound like drugs when one is not paying full attention!
