London has revealed the official mascots for the 2012 Olympic Games in London and they’ve caused a stir of reactions. The two mascots, Wendel and Matlock, were developed with help from a children’s author. They have one eye to represent a camera lens into the world. And the lights on their heads are a nod to iconic London taxicabs. Personally, I do think they look a little bit weird to me but so do many children’s characters (I know this is an outdated reference but the Teletubbies come to mind) and children seem to love them just fine without my approval.
Check out the video below. What do you think: are the 2012 Olympic mascots super cool or super creepy or somewhere in-between?
