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?

Given how ugly I already find so many roadsides and urban streetscapes, watching this was almost too much to bear!

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.

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...
