The internet reacts to Bussi, Spain’s new transit mascot, which is here to haunt your dreams
Have you ever wondered what would happen if Baymax and Pennywise the Dancing Clown birthed an unholy child? Thanks to Spain’s new transit mascot Bussi, we finally have an idea.
Meet la Bussi
‘”Bussi is the new mascot of #Sabadell’s urban buses. He wants to bring the little ones closer to public transport,” the caption of the video wrote, translated by Google Translate.
“It was created by the TUS [Transport Urban Sabadell] cooperative and was presented taking advantage of the European Mobility Week,” the text displayed in the video said, via Google Translate. “It was designed by Ariadna Lara, an illustration student at Escola Illa.” Escola Illa is an art school in Barcelona, Spain.”
So this baffling nightmare creature is the product of a European art school. This should be no surprise. Never forget that a European art student was responsible for World War II. Perhaps the most chilling part of the description is the fact that this thing is designed to lure children into buses. That’s probably something I would have left out of the mascot debut or at the very least, framed it a little differently.
Twitter had a field day with Bussi.
Especially the mascot’s name. People are very, very excited about this name.
As you can imagine, users decided that the mascot was so weird, they had to love him.
This is part of an overall trend on the internet of taking anything inherently creepy and pretending it is cute is somehow a fun personality trait. That type of behavior couldn’t be more evident in the city of Philadelphia and people’s infatuation with Gritty, the Philadelphia Flyers mascot.
Not to be too off topic but go type “Jeffrey Dahmer” in your Twitter search bar to see some of the most disgusting examples of this behavior.
Now I guess I shouldn’t be comparing Bussi to Jeffrey Dahmer. After all, Bussi hasn’t eaten anyone.
At least not yet.
