Texaco rip-off (White Star of Panau)

  1. Texaco rip-off (White Star of Panau)

    I realised this quite a while ago, but I forgot about it, then some reminded me:

    The White Star of Panau looks almost exactly like the Texaco Logo, only without the "T" in the middle.

    See below for comparison:


    (Sorry for the big image.)

    Okay, so maybe it's not a complete rip-off, but it's funny because if you go to a gas station in Just Cause 2 you will see the White Star of Panau Logo on the Gas Pumps.

    And just for reference, here are some more pictures of the White Star of Panau:

    Just thought I'd point that out, and it's not the only rip-off. The helicopter in-game called the Rowlinson K22. The name Rowlinson is actually a company who make clothing, called Rowlinson Knitwear.

    Post any more rip-offs that you are aware of.

    And an interrogation afterwards:
    Policeman: "So, why did you destroy that Texaco fuel station?"
    Criminal: "I needed to earn more chaos points so I could get my next blackmarket unlock."

    Because clothing and helicopters relate, just like large statue bases and gas stations do!

    It's just a coincidence.

    Avalanche stated quite clearly there is no political message in this game, but it certainly has a green one.

    What do you mean? You're ruining Rico's carbon footprint by expelling all that CO2 formed by the fires into the air!

    The Rowlinson heli's looks are based upon the TH-55 Osage, and the UH-10 thing looks like an MH-6 Littlebird.
    Did you know that Razak Razman has a disease and a tooth pain?
