I just watched the Oscar winning short "logorama"
Fun film, great animation, but that's pretty much how I see L.A. -- so is it really satire or just way too close to home?
Bruce Dickson: Re: Logorama
Given how ugly I already find so many roadsides and urban streetscapes, watching this was almost too much to bear!
John Bissell: Re: Logorama
How did they do this without a slew of law suits? It's all about the brand, and I think they took liberties with a few brands here. I would think at least Michelin and McDonald's would be upset by this.
Michael Bissell: Re: Logorama
John: Really? You think McDonald's would be upset at the depiction of Ronald McDonald as a homicidal maniac? Well... maybe...
When I was at the Clio Awards last year they had a "mascot walk of fame" where the Michelin Man (Bib to his friends), Charlie the Tuna and a couple other brand mascots made it to the Brand walk of Fame. Ronald wasn't in attendance because McDonald's said, "Ronald McDonald is not a mascot, he's our Chief Happiness Officer."
Someone's been working the fry station a little too long...
