Woman is stunned to find out what the Travelodge logo actually is
- TikTok user called herself a ‘dumb a**’ for not realising what Travelodge logo was
- Surprised social media star had always thought the image to be rolling hills
With its crescent moon, stars and ‘rest easy’ slogan, there’s no mistaking what the Premier Inn logo is all about – especially when you throw in a snoozing Lenny Henry for good measure.
But rival budget hotel Travelodge has a far more complicated logo, or at least according to one startled TikToker who confessed to finally working out what it actually was… after years of believing it was some rolling hills.
The blue of the hillside with a red sky behind lends itself to a sunrise scene, but that’s not what you’re looking at.
After finally taking a proper look at the Travelodge logo, TikTok user @chxrll posted a video on the social media platform calling herself a ‘dumb a**’, realising what its true meaning actually was.
But have you ever stopped to look to really look at the Travelodge logo? It might not be exactly what you think it is
In contrast, the Premier Inn logo shows a sleeping half-moon on a dark background
After taking a proper look at the logo that appears on billboards, TV ads and on the chain’s 590 hotels, the TikToker finally twigged.
Sharing her revelation on TikTok, user @chxrll declared herself a ‘dumb a**’, realising what its true meaning actually was.
In her viral video, she said: ‘My dumb a** thinking about how the Travelodge logo is a person sleeping…
‘For years I thought it was hills!’
Another commenter had an altogether more surprising take on what they thought the logo was. ‘S***, I thought it was a seagull,’ they replied, LadBible reports.
Another said they had never even paid attention to the design and ‘thought it was just colours’.
One astounded user who says they work for Travelodge said they had never noticed that the meaning of the logo. Another user said: ‘NO WAY. Been living a lie my whole life.’
One person said they felt ‘kinda special’ as they had always known the logo is a person sleeping.
However, it can be argued that the logo is an optical illusion – perhaps it is supposed to remind you of a good night’s sleep as well as the idyllic countryside.
