It would appear that all 400,000 buys you these days is a picture of Lisa Simpson performing a lewd act.

Pounds not dollars. Razz

For our American cousins, 400,000 is around $796,000 at the current exchange rate.

So the design is going to change shape over time, or something?

That's a neat gimmick, I guess.

The idea was to appeal to young people, does being young mean you like horrible color combos and have an affinity for abstract art? Talk about the emperors new cloths here, they tell everyone it's geared toward youth and thought no-one would dare question it for fear of being percieved as old.

You fail and you fail again, shoot this messenger!

It just reminds me of The Dad in the proverbial disco, "grooving" to the "funky beats" with his "young homies". It looks like it was made for young people by ageing local government types who haven't actually met anyone younger than 25 in the last 3 decades.

I know why it's pink.

Over $1 million and that's the best they could do?

When will they learn that old people have no idea what young people find engaging and 'hip'? Seems like every time politicians try to reach out to young people in some way it ends up pushing them away instead. Like spending $1 million on a logo that looks like something you'd find in the bargain bin of a second hand store...

It is sad that this is the best they could come up with, although I think the bigger issue is the overly commercialized nature of the Olympics. This event shouldn't be about commercial interests.

The "official sponsor" control over the Olympics leads to the harassment of the visitors like forcing them to remove clothing that has their competitor's name on it or prohibiting people to enter if they carry a competitor's drink.

A similar, related problem is the overzealous copyright/trademark protections allowed for The Olympic Games, by which I mean any arrangement of the five rings, the word olympics and summer(!) in some context related to it.

It's a shame, really.

Thats just priceless. I just came up with a new term "oh two-ing the twentyone"


In a similar situation my (aviation) school just held a contest to name the new cafiteria, the winning name was that of an old "WWII flying formation" loose Deuce. Wonder if they are going to change it.


P.S. I know that new term is likley to get deleted but it was worth it.

Indeed the fact that MCDONALDS is an 'official' olympic sponsor kind-of killed the whole thing for me..
