Wenlock and Mandeville, the mascots created for next year’s Olympics, might be a bit rubbish but were at least an attempt to be reasonably creative in what is an incredibly stale area of design.


However, they appear to have stepped over the line from “faintly unusual” to “genuinely unsettling” with this gem (and “thanks” to flaneurette for flagging it up):


Made no less unsettling by the fact that hovering over the picture on its product page brings up a HUGE MAGNIFICATION of the thing without warning on the other side of the page.
