Here is a pack of rebuses:

The Pack

Eack of the above rebuses represents a famous brand/company. The relation between a rebus and the brand it represent vary from rebus to rebus (some rebuses relate in a way and others in another way, ... and so on). Also, some of the rebuses may require some should-be-known-to-everyone knowledge about the brands, hence the tag.

Your task, whether you like it or not, is to identify those brands/companies (provide some explanation as well).

Progress so far:

Refer to this wiki answer to get links to all the correct answers.
Solved: A (by Beastly Gerbil), B (by puzzledPig), C (by kayzeroshort), D & E (by North), F (by curiousdannii), G & H (by Rand al'Thor), I (by thecoder16) and J (by DeltaScuti_Fomalhautb).
Unsolved: none.


Hint:

As @MOhem already noticed, D and I are not exactly what one call a . I tried covering that by adding an tag.
That being said, I can confirm that F is a rebus, but it's a twisted rebus as it is a double-layered one.


Notes:

  - All of the images used in the rebuses were shamelessly stolen from Wikipedia, and were edited using an un-updated version of Gimp.
  - The rebuses vary in difficulty, so I expect a lot of partial answers. Thus, I decided to accept the answer that solves the last unsolved rebus.

F:

Google: in a Kiwi accent it sounds like 10 to the 10 times 10, or a Googol.

    $\begingroup$ Given that this is the answer, I would be a lot happier with the rebus if you had placed the dot as a multiplication operator (at the midline) instead of as a decimal point (on the baseline). $\endgroup$ – Hellion Feb 12 '18 at 15:42

Is the J one,

Pepsi

because,

3.14 represents the greek letter PI and the second image represents the capital greek letter PSI. Add these and we get PIPSI which sounds very similar to PEPSI

Partial:

I looks to be

The Four Seasons (the hotel chain), as each photo represents a different season

And I think B is

Nike: (justice-ice) + do, infinitive form of "did" + the clown from It --> "Just Do It," Nike's slogan

Perhaps D is

The Pony Express? (a horse/pony on wheels could move quite fast, hence the "express")

$\endgroup$

Is letter F

Gap? I mean besides Nike, theres no other clothing brands. Besides that, theres also a gao between the first can to thee other two, and the other two cans also have a gap in between them, seperated by a dot.

Is letter E

Oracle? Take the first three letters of orange (ora) then middle letter of chicken (c) and take the LAST two letters of candle, and you get ORACLE

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Correct. You're getting better at rebuses I see. Congrats! $\endgroup$ – ibrahim mahrir Feb 11 '18 at 20:02
  • $\begingroup$ Hmmm. That would work much better if "chicken" had six letters, too. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Feb 11 '18 at 20:29
  • 2
    $\begingroup$ @MOehm North's explanation is different from what I used to make the rebus. Actually it's: take the first letter from the first word, the second from the second, ... and so on. So the letter count for a word doesn't matter. $\endgroup$ – ibrahim mahrir Feb 11 '18 at 22:36
  • $\begingroup$ F is wrong, sorry! $\endgroup$ – ibrahim mahrir Feb 11 '18 at 23:16
  • $\begingroup$ Fair enough, but I still think it would have been nicer to have only six-letter words here. (And it's a bit too "enigmatic" to be a rebus for my taste. How the letters are extracted can only be guessed and I think in a rebus it should be indicated somehow, perhaps cryptically.) $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Feb 12 '18 at 6:52

    $\begingroup$ Then it's not a rebus. (Yes, I've seen the enigmatic tag, but everything else sugets that all images are rebuses.) $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Feb 11 '18 at 11:01

I think letter I is

Windows/Microsoft logo. Each of the pictures has a marking in the corner, which corresponds to a section of the windows logo. Ex. The orange leaves picture is the top left square in the logo, the green meadow picture is the top right, etc...

F is:

Verizon.

Because:

The end of the verizon logo looks like a square root symbol, and tin cans can be used as basic 'telephones' on the ho'RIZON

Since we're apparently doing multiple answers for this one ...

F is probably something to do with
