The CN Tower’s New Mascot Is Every Bit As Underwhelming As You’d Expect

Poor Kevin.

Toronto's CN Tower has a new mascot and, well, here it is.

Yes. It is a tower. With arms.

Genius!

BlogTO has dubbed the unnamed mascot "Towery," but we're going to call him Kevin.

Let's just be honest here. Kevin kind of looks like a Doctor Who prop.

Or a terrible version of Spider-Man villain Mysterio.

And people don't seem terribly impressed.

Although thankfully poor Kevin doesn't have eyes or ears or humanity, so he'll never know.

@Gladaman @blogTO Fixed it. Hey @TourCNTower , this revision is #free ;) #tourism #toronto

This is apparently the tower's first mascot since the 1970s. The previous version was this absolute nightmare on stilts.

BTW, this was the CN Tower's original mascot. A clown on stilts named Diego 😨😨
