Check out Logorama – a cool animated film about a world full of corporate brand logos that won an Oscar for “Best Short Animated Film” in 2009.

This 16-minute movie took 6 years to produce by French production house H5 and was directed by three Frenchmen: François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain.

The story revolves around two cops, played by Michelin Men, chasing down Ronald McDonald through a logo filled Los Angeles.

Enjoy!
