From Russia with love.
Brasil 2014 was a heartache for Brazil as spectators saw seven goals hitting the back of their net. Oddly, this heartache was depicted in their logo that almost looked like a person face-palming.
Flashback to the London Olympics where they introduced Wenlock the mascot. An alien-looking cutiepie. Almost looking like a bowling pin with limbs, the London Olympics team got their share of criticism about it.
Now the Russia World Cup logo is under the spotlight. It has gone viral, which means critics are having a field day with the logo. Some said it looked like Roger from American Dad. Others thought it looked like Nemo from Finding Nemo when tilted.
Personally, it looks weird. The colour combination of three blue eggs seem odd. I guess that’s the alien sellout. To be fair, the rationale given is pretty good. It made sense, in that sense. I guess what was written was not translated into a great visual.
