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?

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 »

"Blade Runner" meets "Idiocracy"
25 March 2016 | by lee_eisenbergSee 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.
