A surreal, weirdly plausible short by H1 Films and Stephan Ziotescu telling the story of genetically engineered product mascots, their inevitable exploitation and mistreatment and the ultimate consequence of that.
Official mascot for the World Meeting of Families 2018 when Pope Francis visits Ireland next month.
Wake up, SHEEPLE!
What the funking funkadelic?
George Clinton’s Parliament’s ‘just dropped’ album Medicaid Fraud Dogg with strangely drawn and oddly-familiar bloodshot hound as mascot.
A less interesting hat, it could be argued.
A Sundance selected short from Steve Warne in which:
A distant father confronts a heroic but troubled past-life as an ’80’s TV show mascot named Pombo.
Colm Hanley, of Murray Consultants, writes:
For Christmas, Andrew [Whelan, from Stradbally, Co Laois] got the present of a lifetime from Santa Claus; two tickets to see his football idol Robbie Brady line out for Norwich against Cardiff City. But just days before the game, Robbie completed a transfer to Premier League side Burnley.
Last week, at the team hotel, Robbie surprised Andrew with his own Ireland jersey and gave him #TheCallUp to be a mascot for Republic of Ireland vs Iceland on Tuesday [tomorrow] night.
A clearly shell-shocked Andrew was delighted to meet his hero and is looking forward to the game on Tuesday.
