After a very successful TV campaing for Blijdorp Zoo, showing Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Olli, it’s time for the official launch of this ‘little’ mascot. The series of commercials were made with the help of A.S.R., shirt-sponsor of football club Feyenoord, and went ballistic in popularity. Now it’s time for the main star from the commercials to move to his new home and relax a bit after working hard for a long time. You can find Olli in his new house which was built inside the monumental Rivièrahal, designed by Sybold van Ravesteyn and built in the early 1940’s. He will be happy to pose a strike for his fans here.
The elephant was designed and created by Hein Mevissen of John Doe B.V.
