Logorama: animated logo film

This. Is. Amazing.

Logorama is a short movie entirely made out of animated corporate logos and mascots. Protagonists include Michelin’s Bibendum as a cop, Ronald McDonald as the bad guy and many others. Some of the animals in the zoo are the Lacoste crocodile, the GOP elephant, the WWF pandas and the MGM lion.

The movie was produced by French collective H5 and explores the extent to which logos are embedded in our daily existence. Coming Sunday it is nominated for an Oscar in the animated short movie category (UPDATE: it won the Oscar).

You can watch the complete movie on garagetv.be. It is loaded with detail and funny references, some of my favorites:

  • Coffee spills into the old Nickelodeon logo,
  • the bluetooth logo as a microphone in the pilot’s headset,
  • Mercedes logo steering wheel and
  • the peanut rolling out of Mr. Peanut’s headless body.

What are your favorites? Let us know in the comments!
