Congratulations, Internet: Another trivial triumph! Thanks to an apparent outcry from what CNN is calling “the Internet’s logo snobs,” the Gap has yanked its new logo in favor of its regular old one. And Malcolm Gladwell said the Internet couldn’t change anything.
I get it. People hated the new logo. The little blue box just looked like dozens of other logos, we’re all sans-serifed out, etc. But where is the Internet outcry about stirrup leggings? Or the lack of pockets on a jacket that should clearly have pockets? When will someone speak up about the terrifying reemergence of clogs?! Get your priorities in order, Internet. Those clogs are easily 900 times worse than that logo.
Settle it once and for all, PopWatchers: New logo or old?
