Storyline

Somewhere in a vibrant and colourful interpretation of sunny Los Angeles where corporate logos and mascots simply rule, a sexy Esso Girl waitress takes her cigarette break, while at the same time, a murderous, gun-totting Ronald McDonald runs amok on the busy highways. As the clear signs of a vehement seismic activity foretell an ominous future, will the Michelin Man police officers stop the unhinged psychopath before he blows the whole town to smithereens?

Did You Know?

Goofs

When the Michelin Man cops are parked outside the KFC, the Ghostbusters "No Ghost" logo Stop sign is facing them with the ghost's head on the left (as it is customarily displayed in North America). When the cops pull away, the sign is shown from the other side, and the ghost is still facing the same way. When seen from the other side, the ghost's head should be on the right - as seen later on when the the Esso Girl and Big Boy are getting into the abandoned cop car. See more »

Unbelievably clever visual experience
8 March 2010 | by jimjo1216See all my reviews

LOGORAMA brings to life a world built out of familiar logos. Hundreds of logos and mascots are used, and they include examples from software companies, shopping centers, restaurants, sports teams, movies, and any number of other products, agencies, and corporations. It's a lot of fun watching all of these familiar logos used so creatively. They fill the screen and zip by without calling attention to themselves. Watching LOGORAMA is like a game of "How Many Logos Can You Name?" To fully appreciate this animated short, one needs to freeze-frame each part and check out all the details.

I cannot imagine how much work it must have been filling this virtual city with all of those brands. Each logo fits in in some logical way. Boxy logos, for example, are often used as buildings, while pedestrians are made from the yellow AOL Instant Messenger guy or the Bic pen guy. Cops are Michelin men. The zoo includes the MGM lion and the Linux penguin. Hundreds and hundreds of everyday logos are used and they are used so cleverly that it nearly boggles the mind. As new logos reveal themselves, the viewer is awestruck. "Aw, man! No way!"

It's that cool.

The plot is secondary, but includes chase scenes, gunfire, and natural disasters. It's action-packed. The dialogue is laced with profanity and the cartoon has a mature (PG-13?) edge.

LOGORAMA doesn't seem to have any deep symbolic meaning. It's just a fun way to kind of comment on how many different corporate logos people are familiar with nowadays. Our everyday lives are flooded with these images on TV, in newspaper ads, on the street, etc. This film takes these well-known images and has fun with them.

I think it's great fun to see all of the familiar logos and images, but the profanity seems a little unnecessary and off-putting and the low-budget voice cast could be better. (Just my opinion.) Still the visual experience is well worth it and the details in this short warrant repeat viewings and freeze-frame inspection.

How many logos can YOU name?
