Perplexed, embarrassed about 'Tipsy'
Is anyone else more than a little perplexed, confused or embarrassed, that the symbol and mascot for this year's Sonoma International Film Festival is a drunken bottle with half-closed eyes (spilling his wine) whose name is "Tipsy"?
I'm certainly up for a good time and there have been more than a few occasions where I have looked a bit like this happy fellow. I'm just not sure this is the image or impression we want to be exposing.
I think it's great not to take things too seriously, but I'm thinking more than a few of the producers, directors, actors, and attendees will not be thrilled with this inference or implication.
