Goatse Olympics 2012

The London 2012 Olympics unveiled their new branding today, and it's the reaction's not been too positive. The BBC were asking people if they could do better.

This one appeared on the BBC News website earlier today, with its artist Sean Stayte saying "the hands represent Britain pulling together to reveal the Olympics."

It was taken offline, most likely due to its resemblance to goatse.cx. Apparently nobody told BBC London News.

goatse.cx doesn't work any more, perhaps that's why it isn't filtered.

I had seen that. It may be in bad taste but it beats their original idea, hands down.....or hands pulling or something to do with hands.

This version of the logo is better I think:



I like how it says 2012 and also has the countries of the UK in abstract form.

Some forums have commented that it looks like an indecent act is being performed upon the characters to the left.

The amazing thing is that the organisers paid some corporate dickheads £400,000 for this hideous piece of shit.
