Why Walt Disney in all his photos shows two fingersPictolic
Studying the history of the Disney company, it is possible to notice an unusual thing: the company's founder Walter Elias Disney photos always somewhere indicates two clasped fingers of the right hand — middle and index. Explain what it is.
Moreover, if you come to one of the parks "Disneyland" and ask employees to show the way, they pulled the fingers as well as Walt Disney photos.
And the clue lies here. Famous cartoonist in the day smoked three packs of cigarettes: he's addicted to Smoking, when he worked as an ambulance driver during the First world war in France. When a person smokes a lot, it is difficult to seize the moment and take pictures of him without a cigarette. Probably this dependence is caused by the famous Disney cough that accompanied his statements. Founder of entertainment Empire, died at 65 of lung cancer.
All this does not fit the image of a good storyteller who draw his followers from Disney, and sets a bad example for the kids at Disneyland, so all the official photos of the multiplier a cigarette in his hands retouch. And, so that Park visitors did not seem strange to the resulting shape of the fingers, the workers were told all pointing gestures performed with two fingers — the so-called "gesture of Disney". In addition to show something with one finger in many countries it is considered impolite.
The gesture has penetrated into modern cinema: Tom Hanks, who played Disney in the film "Saving Mr. banks" in 2013, adds the index and middle fingers just like his character on retouched photos.
