The DAMN thing is killing people. well, almost





Unpopular Olympic Logo May Cause Seizures


Animated Display Of London 2012 Logo May Cause Epileptic Seizures


POSTED: 12:02 pm EDT June 7, 2007
UPDATED: 1:07 pm EDT June 7, 2007





Organizers for the London 2012 Games hoped the jigsaw-style logo and brand would inspire Olympic fans to reach out to people all over the World.
"London 2012 will be Everyone's Games, everyone's 2012," London 2012 Chairman Sebastian Coe said.






"This is the vision at the very heart of our brand. It will define the venues we build and the Games we hold and act as a reminder of our promise to use the Olympic spirit to inspire everyone and reach out to young people around the world. It is an invitation to take part and be involved."
Instead, the design itself has drawn unfavorable responses and an animated display has even caused epileptic seizures in viewers.
Epilepsy Action, a British health charity, said 10 people had complained about the animation and some had suffered seizures from watching images depicting a diver plunging into a pool.
The Olympic group said it has taken steps to remove the animation from the Web site and will now re-edit the film.
The logo design, which cost $796,000, was targeted at young people. It is made up of four jagged pieces that form the numbers 2012 and is available in four colors: pink, blue, green and orange.
In a departure from previous Games, the logo has no visual imagery of the host city or country.
Within hours of the logos unveiling Monday, an online petition was started asking for a new design.
But not everyone is opposed to the logo.
"This is a truly innovative brand logo that graphically captures the essence of the London 2012 Olympic Games -- namely to inspire young people around the world through sport and the Olympic values," IOC President Jacque Rogge said.
"Each edition of the Olympic Games brings its own flavor and touch to what is now well over a century of modern Olympic history; the brand launched (Monday) by London 2012 is, I believe, an early indication of the dynamism, modernity and inclusiveness with which London 2012 will leave its Olympic mark."

They almost claimed it cures AIDS. Just silly. This logo is going to bring racial harmony and peace among nations.

Me wants to hurl.

Chuck Norris got his ass beat down by this logo.

Seriously, it took me a good 10 minutes to work out those objects were supposed to read 2012.

Yeah, it's insane. I would've done it for half a million even.


The more I look at it, the angrier I get.

Yeah well the logo, the games and that smug wee asshole Lord Coe all make me angry waste of goddamn money that could have been put to better use they are taking away money for charity and taxing us all so a shitty part of London can be regenerated and Londoners can say they have the olympics.
I didn't want the olympics, I am not going to go, I live about 400 miles from the host city, hell I live in a different country yet my taxes paid for that crappy logo and I am going to pay even more for the games.

No shit, your taxes are going towards it? Lame.

I lived about 30km from a lot of events when Sydney held the Olympics... didn't attend a single event (actually, I think the aquestrian was less than 5km from where I lived).

It was kind of a pain to get around during that period too.

I guess you have to look at the long term benefits though, a regeneration of London will do good for everyone and the olympics bring tourists which spend money and they will come back and tell their friends and all that crap.

I don't know if any of that is real, I don't recall their being a big influx of money to Australia after the Olympics, but it sounds like a good theory.

In don't know if there are any real benefits for anyone outside of London, there is no way that people in places like Aberdeen or Newcastle will benfit from the games yet they are still expected to cough up the cash for it.
I also know for a fact that past olympic cities had no economic benefit whatsoever in hodting the games Greece is still paying for them even Atlanta which was neraly a decade ago is still reporting economic issues from the games I don't how Syndey got on.
What really annoye me is that Londons hosts the olympics and all of the UK is exected to pay yet in 2014 Galsgow hosts the Commonwealth games ( not as big as the olympics but still a big deal) and only Scotland is expected to pay for that.

Commonwealth Games is slightly different. Melbourne hosted them a few years and I think only that State paid for it. They mainly promo'ed Melbourne attractions and stuff as well, rather than promoting all of Australia.

yeah fair point but I also reckon the London games will do nothing to promote Scotland, Wales and Ireland but we are all going to have pay for it. The games was always a bad idea IMO they must have known that asking the citizens of 3 of the other countries in the UK to help pay for the games was not excatly a winning formula, actually they didn't ask they just told us it was happening.
