Synopsis of Lunch Box
In 1979, Time Magazine asked if the sexual revolution was over, and if disco, having reached an apex in popularity, was dying. Nowhere was disco's demise better represented than in Aladdin's Disco metal lunchbox with matching plastic thermos, created that year. Usually a lunchbox represents a cultural rise, but in the case of a social and musical trend largely devoted to hedonistic adults, a lunchbox that kids carry to school spells good night. It's hard to wake up after a hard night of dancing, drinking (and who knows what else) and pack your child's lunch in a box cartoonishly depicting the previous evening's debauchery.
