Forgive Me, Corporate Overlords

I was only able to identify 35 of these 50 company logos. You'd think that 8 hours of TV a day would have prepared me better.

(It's a little finicky about spelling, but you can keep redoing it until you get it right. Sorry if this is one of those forwards that's already made the rounds on your internet tubes.)

Update: The comments contain spoilers (natch!). So take the quiz first!

I'd appreciate knowing what no. 35 is. I thought it was the cable division of a certain large media company, but no version of that media company's name gave me any love.

Otto Man said...

Time Warner, right? I tried every variation and got cockblocked all the way.

Those were tough. Even giving me TW, I got 37. I guess I'm not such a good consumer after all.

Thrillhous said...

Yeah, I was sure it was T-W too. But now I'm thinking they sold off their cable unit, but I don't know who to.

Thrillhous said...

Okay, I wasted valuable American economy boosting time and looked it up. They really really want you to include the word "Cable".

# 35 on mine was Hyundai. Maybe the test gets jumbled up randomly?

I only got 30.

Otto Man said...

Smitty's right -- Hyundai was 35, TWC was 30.

Sorry, but Thrillhous only knows his numbers up to eleventeen.

I got 38, if you include the TW thing...that gave me trouble too.

But it's really not fair asking us to name all the logos for these obscure small businesses, don'tcha think?

Mike said...

Good lord. I gave up as soon as I saw I had to write stuff in. Plus, I knew less than half the first row.

I did, however, so the logo of a former employer down in row four or five.

Thrillhous said...

Okay okay, I'm no good with numbers, alright? What can I say, I work just a couple miles from that most worthy of Mathematistical Deciders. must've rubbed off.

There I go, blaming dubya again. I truly hate myself and all of america. And the number 35.

Thrillhous said...

And thanks for that link, Sideshow. Once again, the free market is just a bit more free if you're a gigantic company.

38 out of 50. Is there an answer key for this thing somewhere?

What were 7, 10, 11, 18, 19, 24, 25, 28 (I know I should know this one!), 40, 45 (this is a car, right?) and 50? Some of those I'm fairly sure I've never laid eyes on.
