Did Macy’s Snub Murakami?

11.19.10 Bucky Turco

For this full page ad (click to enlarge) in today’s subway-fire-starting freebie amNewYork, Macy’s promotes its Thanksgiving Day Parade and name drops a whole bunch of floats (Dora the Explorer, Kung Fu Panda, Despicable Me Minions, the Kool-Aid Man), but fails to acknowledge the two that standout the most: Takashi Murakami’s. Good enough for the image, but not of a mention? Curiously, his characters are listed on the website, but not him. Simple oversight or art world atrocity?
