Oh dear, we found another copy for the copied copier service advert.

Badland: 

Well, the "I've seen that before"-bell has rung loud and clear,there's another recent poster series for a copy-shop that sold it's service by simply copying stuff that happened to be in the vicinity of the poster. Like park benches. The guy&gal behind the Arkitektkopia campaign we showed you yesterday is not the only creative team to think of this idea.

This ad was made in Denmark, back in 2001 and grabbed home awards-a-plenty, it started with wining a bronze at Danish award Guldkorn, then got shortlisted at London International and then nabbing a Gold in Montreux.

And the Look printing found in Lürzers Archive issue 3 in 2004.

all of this kinda remind us of this current campaign that we wrote about yesterday.

    Perhaps this is 'cause it's in Denmark and I don't know what the words say.... but I don't get it?? I have no idea what these ads mean.

    Vester Kopi, Arkitektkopia and Look Printing are copy shops - like Kinko's. The ads are simply copies of things around them. (no words, just the sender). What is not to get?
