1994 World Cup poster

The USA 94 marketing men realised that to sell the game to the mass of Americans they had to find an image that was recognisable to the majority of the population. Hence ‘Wrongway Round Baseball Cap Wearing Teenage Lardass’ was born. It could have been a huge success, but US government officials objected, claiming that the image bore an unflattering resemblance to President Clinton, so it was replaced by that strange dog mascot that nobody liked. Shame.
