Pro Bono and park bench media seems to go hand in hand around the world. Same idea I say. Rip-off artists.
Reported in the trade-press - here's a pair I think have *nothing* at all in common - really!
If you are going to advertise anything with/about/or for food, creatives tend to play with it like little children...
The illustrator who traced the old Nazi Germany propaganda poster was by no means trying to imply that american beef (and it's eaters) were Nazi's. We think.
This ad was spotted by Noah Spurrier. You might, as a reflex, begin to rub your eyes here. It is like seeing double isn't it?
Oh yes - there are more ads where people play with their food. Seems we'll never run out of these!
Ah - how do we describe the product advantage..? I know! We'll show them!
Here's a new one for the fodder - same visual - different idea. Try that one on for size.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery......
Underground bands are really unknown.. And that is part of the attraction, no?
Instead of stealing good ideas from others - why not reuse your own?
Sex sells - sex Varga's style sells even better. End of class.
The Heineken twins - or; Stare at a logo long enough and you'll find ... that same very thing other people who stared at the logo found!
Milk Spoofs - as spofing that milk mustache campaign seems to be people's favorite pass time.
The old "when women have guns" gag, executed almost identically on two separate posters..
This is the most blatant ripoff that I have seen so far!
Note that even the lines are more or less directly translated, as in " It's an american car.." vs "It smells Swedish..".
The good guys auto ads was in the 1995 Communication Arts Annual, and I'm sure they won a nice bunch of addy, andy, beffie bessie, clio and other assorted awards.
Listen up, brands and social media people, there's one idea so over-used...
"All right, Try this on her. I'm Paul, you have beautiful eyes."
Sadly, what has gotten more common over the years has now reached epic...
