The worst mascots in Olympic history

I always thought that Atlanta 96’s Izzy would be a little hard to top, but the British have succeeded where even the Chinese failed.

They came up with these two hideous alien- like creatures with incredibly weird names and bodies. Apparently, these were meant to appeal to children. If I were a child, I think these images would give me nightmares. They look like the product of an unholy communion between R2D2, C3PO and those two aliens from the Simpsons.

    R2D2, C3PO and aliens from the Simpsons, all the things we love, mated into a giant human-like, one-eye-balled, mercury looking thing which rather irritatingly also resembles Sonic and Tails !

    I was wondering why I find these guys frightening for no apparent reason.

    Your mercury comment answered that for me- they remind me of the T-1000! (evil mercury robot from Terminator 2)
