Well, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the summer Olympic games are just round the corner. It feels it was not such a long time ago when we all heard the results of that ballot. Some people then said `Good´, and thought `What on Earth?´. Some others just didn´t want to hear about it or were overjoyed.
Now, the Government is asking Londoners to stop using public transport while the many sporting events taking place, and warns us of possible shortages in internet access. So, what many of us are now saying is `Why on Earth´?
The London Olympics team have produced many outdoor advertising posters to try and gain our trust and support. Some of the posters are really interesting and don´t avoid controversy. I am pasting some of them below. I have deliberately avoid using the ones that are directly sponsored.
I simply love the idea behind this poster, how it forces us to look beyond appearances.
Nice, erm, poster!
London 1948 – have you ever seen this one?
