Opinion

Looks like we have our first real contender for Worst of the Year, not to mention a special award for most consistent suckiness given their previous logo. I mean, wow. Where the old logo at least had a kitschy Arizona charm to it the new one only has a weird armed security, faux-luxury kitsch look to it that is very unflattering. The chiseled, 3D texture execution is some of the cheapest we've seen here in a while. Also, not to be missed: this video. Partey!

Thanks to Remington Box for the tip.
