    Re: Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics Mascot(s) to be revealed Nov 27

    The mascots are getting quite a bit of negative feedback. Even on the Global BC news, the reporters didn't know what to think, that led them to parody the mascots by coming up with ones that were more representative of Vancouver with such characters as:
    Mouldy the Grow-op fungus
    Tarpy the Leaky Condo
    The Pan-Handling Pine Beetle

    I have mixed feelings about them. They are too similar in style to the 2008 Beijing mascots.

    Everything looks very Asian inspired these days.

    It certainly does. That's why it has the nicknames of Van Kong, or Hongcouver

    I know the days of one mascot are virtually over due to marketing, but I sure would like to go back to those days where we could focus on one instead of 2, 3, 4 or in Beijings case FIVE!

    Vancouver also has a VERY large Filipino population. (yes, I realize they are asia too)

    Vancouver and LA are the only 2 places that P.A.L. (Philippine AirLines) flies to.

    I think it'd be fun to go up and see some events.

    plus, Asian culture is very popular with teens and tweens currently, so it's only natural to try to appeal to that market that isn't already an Olympic fan.

    I do like them too. Though it reminds me of Playhouse Disney.

    I think Miga looks too similar to Beijing's Jingjing:


    I like Mukmuk the best and he was sidelined to sidekick status


    Here's what the first Mascot pins look like:

    Here's another I just made. The mascots take a stroll on Abbey Road. Notice Mukmuk is second in line, where Ringo was.
