Disney Honors Teen Who Gifted Half Marathon Medal to Injured Runner

Sarah White, a 16 year old from Seattle, WA, was recognized earlier this week by the Disneyland Resort for selflessly gifting her medal from the 2010 Disneyland Half Marathon to a fellow runner who was injured during the event. At just about a half mile from the finish line, 76 year old Shirley Rackner of Portland, OR fell and was injured, ultimately preventing her from finishing the race and earning the medal herself. At a pep rally held at White’s school, Disney (and Mickey Mouse) recognized White for her generosity and replaced her medal in a ceremony. Rackner, who had to have surgery to have a metal plate attached to her wrist, was also in attendance.

Disney’s ‘Tangled’ New Viral Vids: ‘Tower for Rent,’ ‘Frying Pan’ and ‘Police Pursuit’

They keep coming and today we have a trio of viral videos for Disney’s Tangled, from Walt Disney Animation Studios.

In the first video, there’s a studio apartment available for rent or lease. Its last tenant had been there for eighteen years, but spoiler alert: we’re not quite sure there’s a bathroom.

Next is a television ad for the opportunity to own one of the most lethal and feared weapons man has ever known. Oh, and you can cook with it too. Now how much would you pay? Witness the power of the frying pan:

Disney’s ‘TRON: Legacy’ Clip: Sirens Dress Sam

Beau Garrett in 'TRON: Legacy' © Disney Enterprises, Inc.  All Rights Reserved.In the following clip, which has been known to induce giggles at some presentations I’ve seen it at, the Sirens (led here by Beau Garrett), use their magic touch to strip Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) of his civvies and suit him up in the skin-tight light suit before sending him off to the game grid where his only instruction is to ‘survive.’ Before he can head out to certain doom, however, he must first receive his identity disc along with specific instructions which always seemed to me should be known by a program at this cycle, especially since it was explicitly pointed out that he didn’t have one earlier in the film when first picked up by the Recognizer. Luckily for the audience, who needs to be aware that a program can be de-rezzed for losing its disc (despite the fact that Sam hasn’t already for seemingly misplacing his previous one), it appears programs are cursed with limited memory allocation.
