Partick Thistle unveil 'terrifying' new mascot Kingsley



Partick Thistle's new mascot Kingsley - designed by Turner Prize-nominated artist David Shrigley - has caused a social media storm on its home debut.

The yellow character was paraded at Firhill Stadium as part of a new deal with US investment firm, Kingsford Capital, thought to be worth ?200,000.

The mascot's quirky look soon saw thousands of comments and memes appear on social media sites around the world.

While some backed Kingsley others admitted to finding it "terrifying".

Stuart Drummond, who was the Hartlepool mascot, H'Angus the Monkey, and once even the town's mayor. told BBC Newsbeat Kingsley will bring shame on the good name of mascots





Kingsley was unveiled as a new mascot to mark Partick Thistle's new sponsorship deal with California-based firm, Kingsford Capital.

The deal, for a minimum of two years, will see the Kingsford brand on the Jags' strips and Firhill Stadium.

Glasgow-based artist Shrigley, a Thistle fan, had introduced the club to Kingsford Capital's manager, Mike Wilkins.

Mr Wilkins, who has been described as an art aficionado, and Mr Shrigley, first met several years ago over dinner in San Francisco.

A formal sponsorship deal was established thought to be worth ?200,000 over two years, meaning Kingsford's Shrigley-designed logo will now feature on the front of Thistle's home and away strips for at least the next two seasons.

possibly the worst mascot idea ever....what were they thinking ?

It won't be a bang - duds kind of hiss a bit then fizzle out at best.

Perhaps they rely upon the sound of terrified toddlers screaming to create the noise.

PS: Love the spelling correction in the logo (or whatever the f**k it is). Perhaps Kingsley's sister mascot had big tits and they were going for "Down to Bustiness" and didn't want to give anything away? Perhaps Kingsford has an upcoming marketing plan around the theme "Kingsford: Where eckonomics matters more than edukayshon"?

This is brilliant, don't think i could have pulled it off cause i would have been pissing myself laughing by the end of it. Click the link for the actual audio.

An unknown Aussie bloke - who's larrikin game is strong - pulled off an elaborate prank call, where he used two different phones (set to private) to call two different people, and held them next to each other so that each person thought the other had made the call.

It was posted to Reddit with the title 'Two phones, both on private, two calls made, couldn't have gone any better', which pretty much sums it up.

Please enjoy what is basically a loop of two dudes going "no YOU fucken' called me, ya' dickhead" before rage quitting the call.

If you want to see a goal keeping howler, just check out Brisbane Roar's second goal against Canberra. And that by the Matilda's No.1 goalie. Current Score Roar 2 Canberra 0. (W-League).

Agreed. No pressure on the goal until she catches it...... then fumbles it.... into her own goal. FWIW, she is far better than that and showed why in the second half to deny us a third through Gielnik

The female kangaroo has a pouch. The male kangaroo doesn't. So the male kangaroo has pouch envy. "Why don't i get a pouch? I've got things to carry too. At least give me a pocket".

The struggle to free myself from restraints becomes my very shackles.

What do you get when you mix an A Capella group, a current Broadway hit, and a famous Christmas song?

Calls are mounting ahead of the 67th FIFA Congress for the world football governing body to expel Israeli football clubs based in illegal Israeli settlements.

This has Nothing to do with anti Semitism at all, that's what Israel would lead people to think. Its their go to card.
This is to do with human rights and the fact that FIFA are selective in their own rules.
Israel's football teams should come from Israel not internationally recognised, illegally occupied land where the legal inhabitants are poorly treated.
