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 »

Is this an artistic short or a vehicle of advertising?
4 February 2010 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This Oscar nominated short animation is about an American city composed of logos, that gets destroyed in a chaos of man-made and natural disasters.

"Logorama" may be viewed as innovative and entertaining as it incorporates so many brands and logos in the film. it may help to connect with the viewers as people and backgrounds are already familiar. However, I argue that "Logorama" could be a vehicle marketing, serving to advertise hundreds of brands in a space of 16 minutes. Most of the logos are on the screen for no apparent reason, and adds no storyline or depth to the plot. The logos are there just for the sake of being there. The inundation of unsubtle product placement and in your face advertising makes me wonder whether artistic merits are still prevalent in the short. I am hesitant to praise this short in a positive manner.
