I have a certain sensation that it will be two mascots again -- just as in Torino. It would also link to Calgary 1988, with Hidy and Howdy. Maybe this time, we'll have Shity and Shouty, the two obnoxious seagulls? :lol:

However, I'm fearing the worst. The mascots of the past years (including those of the World Cup and the EURO, maybe only with the exception of Beijing's cute little panda) were ugly enough to kill my optimism.

Have taichi and Tanaka been alerted? They're the ones who can't keep their pants dry until the mascots, and the pictograms, and the medals, etc., etc., have all rolled out.

Ah, Baron, I'm very disappointed you are not alerting me :(, but OK I got the news !! :D can't wait till 27 nov :D

I don't have much expectations for this mascot, but we must wait and see, maybe they would bring us a surprise. I'm hoping they return to the clasic 80's designs for the mascots and they leave behind these abstract designs that have been a failure over this last years.

I never have high expectations for any mascot. They've all been crap since Mischa.

Yes baron, I'm already alerted and excited. Can't wait for November 27!

The logo was the result of a design competition (it was London, not Vancouver, that said they market tested their logo). Only the 9 judges had a say over the 1600 individually submitted designs (the vast majority of which I would guess were crap done in Paint or Word ClipArt, judging by the "submit your own 2012 logo" contests found all over the blogosphere).

The mascot was the result of a request for proposal search for the designer (not the design) and would have been handled in a more professional manner - with facilitated discussion groups and an inclusive concept development process.

Still, I'm never really keen on mascots. I don't have big expectations for this one either. But will hold off until it is actually launched.
