Not being the target audience I asked my nieces, aged four and six, what they thought about them. They replied thusly:
'Boring, not cuddly.'
'Can I have some crisps?'
Which I think says it all.

Underwhelming. Now, can I have some crisps?
Crispy. Can I have some mascots?
(They look like the sort of thing my son would design as a scary character for the many games he makes up.)
The mascots are nothing in comparison to the incredibly bad animations that go with it. I liked China's ones, they were great. Do you think they'd notice if we 'borrowed' them?
Not as good as the Russians, the Americans or the Chinese but marginally better than the Canadians.
Wanted by the people supporting them to do well, but really unlikely to stir anyone to great excitement.
And as such, a brilliant summary of Britain's athletes.
I think I speak for everyone when I say.. are they shitting us ?
And we thought the 'Lisa Simpson blow-job' logo was bad.
That's what they remind me of, think Leela from Futurama...
Excellent, it even has the pointy pony tail bit at the back.
Ah - just posted;
Bankrupt Olympic Committee Choose Microsoft Clipart Stickman as Official Logo
and then saw this post - yes the new charectors are poor - but not as poor as they could have been.
Anyway, here's my effort;
Re video link : Hideous, clunky, featureless lump of scrap - and those two mascots are not much better.
If they wanted to 'engage the kids' why not just go with a couple of bored looking Special Brew cans?
Rizzla and Smackhead
Oh, they did.
The TIA1W performance enhanced effort is far better
Boring, boring, boring.
TIA1W def better ... well, cheaper, at least.
They should have gone with these:
I think it is nice that they have a special one for the paralympics, just to emphasis that they really are different to everyone else!
I need a wee. Then can I have some crisps?
