Ads imitate cartoons at Cannes - again.

Remember last year, when a "accidental" spot-on copy of a Far Side Cartoon won the Grand Prix Outdoor? (Or maybe, it was a just copy of a 1998 Peugeot ad....... ?) Course it could be all coincidence as they say - anyway, this year in Cannes another copy-of-a-cartoon won Bronze in the poster category. Oy vey. Cannes is going straight down the toons. ;9

ad for Camp Light Juice By agency age.comunicações, Sao Paulo - bronze winner Cannes festival, 2004. Their homepage.

Does it remind you of anything? To me it looks a lot like a cartoon I have here in an old copy of Bizarro magazine (Bizarro is a Swedish mag of mixed toons, like the far side, Dan Piraro's and whatnot, not to be confused with Dan Piraro's toonsite bizarro). Looks pretty much exactly like it.

Freaky how them coincidences happen, isn't it?
