So yeah, a trillion pounds pissed into the 'creative' industries later and we get this shit

Now apparently we (I say we, I mean shitty London which is apparently a design wasteland if these things are anything to go by) have 1 Mascot for the Olympics that TV companies care about and 1 for the Paralympics which the BBC is obliged to show but shunts to highlights on BBC4 at 2300+. 

The worst thing is can sort of see what they have tried to do. They have gone for a sort of cuddly black hack robot thing. The problem is that it comes out looking like something a taxi might have shit. What they have done was sit down with a copy of transformers 1 & 2 and then made giant transforming taxi and routemaster, called them Apocalyptor and Psychotron and watched them fly off the shelves. 

Creative fcuking industries my arse. 


  1. I can't decide. Is having a one-eyed mascot for the paralympics insensitive or pandering?
