Did You Know?


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 »


Michelinman Mike: Oh, God. It was... you know what? You should come with us next time.
Michelinman Mitch: No, man. I don't like zoos.
Michelinman Mike: Aw, man. But the kids go apeshit for it.
Michelinman Mitch: Yeah, well, I don't see my kids that much. Besides, it's depressing.
Michelinman Mike: What? Getting up close to animals? I mean, where the hell else you going to get that close to a cheetah?
Michelinman Mitch: Yeah, that cheetah can run like a motherfucker, but in a zoo, they ain't got enough room to hit second gear. I mean, it ain't like they're in their natural habitat.
Michelinman Mike: Yeah, no shit, man. ...

"Blade Runner" meets "Idiocracy"
25 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

2009's winner of Best Animated Short is a biting satire on crass consumerism. H5's "Logorama" depicts a city - probably LA - that is essentially one giant product placement. Every object in the city is either a corporate logo or a corporate mascot. So when a high-speed chase (for Ronald McDonald) starts, it's up to all the representations of commercialism to help stop the guy. The short reminded me of Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" (in the sense that there's nothing but advertising everywhere) and Mike Judge's "Idiocracy" (wherein the world is full of stupid people and the stars on the US flag are replaced with the Carl's Jr. logo). There was also a hint of John Carpenter's "They Live" (in which a man discovers a pair of sunglasses that enable him to see the true messages of commercialism). But more than anything, it's a clever cartoon, reminding the viewer of how commercialism inundates our lives every day.

Worth seeing.
