WARNING: This logo is very loud, please lower your volume before watching.

Nicknames: "The Swinging Elephant", "Thai MGM Parody", "Thai Elephant"

Logo: On a blue paper background, there is a red/blue ribbon circle. The letters "CF" in gold are seen on the blue part of the ribbons. Inside, there is a live-action capture of an elephant swinging its head on a sunny sky for about five seconds straight before it freezes. Light rays of various colors then appear spinning in behind the ribbons. The green Thai text "โคลีเซียมฟิล์ม" then appears below the ribbon, before the elephant freezes. The light rays keep spinning before they stop.

Variant: There is a dark background variant, most possibly due to film deterioration.

FX/SFX: The live-action elephant, the light rays.

Music/Sounds: A loud stock triumphant fanfare, with the roars from the elephant. One film used more furious roars than the original logo with a male announcer.

Availability: Rare. Was seen on <a href="" target="_self">Phyak Yikee</a> and <a href="" target="_self">Kha Ma Kab Phra.</a>

Editor's Note: This gained infamy as one of the scariest Southeast Asian logos due to the elephant's menacing look and uncanny motions, alongside the loud fanfare.
