The CN Tower is undoubtedly the soaring jewel of Toronto’s picturesque skyline, but many feel our city’s most-photographed landmark missed the mark when it unveiled its new mascot on Instagram on Wednesday.

Some questioned why the majestic tower would need a pint-sized version, while others sympathized with the person stuck inside it during peak summer temperatures.

But even more seemed to feel it had joined the likes of the Burger King on the ever-growing list of creepy mascots. Others said it wasn’t worthy of the tower’s stately and imposing stature.

Here’s at look at some other mascots that have been described as “creepy” or worse:

The Burger King:

Ronald McDonald:

Jack in the Box:

Michelin Man:

Pistol Pete (Oklahoma State University):

The Friar (Providence College):

King Cake Baby (New Orleans Pelicans secondary mascot):
