So we recently discovered that this is going to be the logo for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, which the Philippines will be hosting:
To call it “hideous” would be a disservice to hideous things we’d rather have as the SEA Games logo, because this one is just plainly lazy. It’s so lazy, in fact, that the clapback this excuse for a logo got seems to have had much more thought and effort put into it. Here are just 8 examples.

This is just one alternative logo among many that were suggested. And these people did it for absolutely free. Not even for a shoutout or something. Somewhere, Jameson Blake is wondering where these people were when he needed a logo.

It does have a striking resemblance.
What everybody was thinking

Sums it up quite nicely.
Why waste your shot?

Everything is a branding opportunity. Even this.

To be fair, it does look like a dog trying to stand up on its two hind legs.
It must have happened

And yet this joke still seems to have taken more effort than the actual logo.

Penis or not penis, pass your logo!
The real issue
Everyone’s clamoring against the new SEA Games logo.
But whose gonna clamor against the establishment of SEA Games facilities at the New Clark City displacing thousands of Aeta families? #NoToClarkGreenCity

Because it’s not funny for our Aeta brethren.
What do you think of the logo? Tell us below!
