What the f### are they?? Why have they only got one eye??
It just gets more embarrasing by the second.
They are kinda strange but not awful. I think they're aimed at kids too.
Apparently they asked kids for advice. I somehow doubt they went for blobs of steel, so someone has taken a great deal of artistic licence.
The story behind the names is fine though.
They do look ridiculous. But with them and the crazy logo, maybe it's all part of a grand plan to lure all the opposition into a false sense of security, make them all think we're idiots; then we put a mousetrap into Usain Bolts shoes and we thrash everyone in every event except for pole vault. The perfect crime.
Oh wow, they're cool!
I didn't like them when I first saw the picture, but after watching the video with Clare Balding I really like the mascots.
I think they're good tbh.
I actually rather like them. I think it's pushing the mascot out of it's typical role as a logo of sorts and a costume for in the stadium, and will engage people, especially children with the games. Think it's rather clever communications, certainly better than choosing the typical animal or such like, which is more restrictive.
The beijing olympics ones， were better。。。。。
when you put their name together, it means, beijing welcomes you......a clear message...
whereas these two have weird names that maybe of good meaning but nobody will have a clue as to what they mean, a waste of time......
and the design look weird.......if you shown them in the dark, it probably makes babies cry......
They're a slightly ugly mish mash of things. I don't like the taxi headlights embedded into their globular shiny skulls. I don't like the fact that their singular eyes are supposed to be cameras that 'watch and record' everything around them. That idea creeps me out. Am I the only one?
They aren't completely hideous though.
I have no ******* idea what they're suppose to be.
They look like hillbillies. Why do they only have one eye? Also, the one on the right - it looks like his eye is actually a smile, with his actual nose and eye further up...
In other words - epic fail.
I hated them at first. But I think the real life models in the vid look awesome. And I suppose they do look better than boring animals.
Not entirely sure though tbh - they do look like something from a CBeebies show.
Wtf was the guy that made these smoking when he designed them?!
I really like them and think they're gorgeous... after seeing the video. I agree they're not much to look at if you just see the picture but SO much better than stupid fluffy animals. And having the story is nice as well.
I actually quite like them.
Then again, I also liked to logo when it was inveiled.
