Wine and Mice.

...what no cheese? Ok, have you ever noticed that a computer mouse can look a wee bit like a wineglass when turned upside down? Well, so did everybody else!

Airport! And again!

Airport inspiration - European creatives seem to travel a lot.

Two sets of posters executing the same idea.

Only an inch away from the orginal...

When flogging some weight-loss product - always use the visual of a BELT. MMmmm'K? Actually - these are smarter than that - but oh-so-alike..

Evian and other Waters

The old "fish prefers mineral water" gag is enough to make me cry - commando.com has also collected a bunch in his archives - here are three examples from around the planet...

Badland: 
 

Toy Cars *R* Us!

Can you believe this one? Two identical ads-gags in "new and interesting media" (not unusual) winning - get this - the same dang award separated only by a few years!

Badland: 
 

Elephants and Mobile Phones.

Did these ads copy each other - or did the idea-god simply mess with two creative teams heads at the same time? Who knows.

Badland: 
 

Greenpeace vs Designstudents

A logo for greenpeace and a logo for a newspaper - end up looking almost exactly the same?

Badland: 
 

Milk and Mobile Phones.

Milk? and Mobile phones? What do they have in common? The packaging of course! But don't drag that all the way to the ads.....

Badland: 
 

Sometimes a cigar is just a layout.

as Paul Arden put it: A layout is never an idea. Here's proof. If you find an idea in here - you're a better adgrunt.

Badland: 
 

Honey - where are my ideas?

Ikea rocked the advertising world all the way from Canada to Denmark. Must've been all that jumping on the beds!

Adland: 
 

Train Ads.

I think I can I think I can.. Rip off another train-ad, cause hey, they are all the same...I think I can I think I can I think I can.......

Don't Jump!

Well, you might have seen at least one of these ads , it's a darn good idea. Advertising on the roof of buses.. Clever. Same headline, same media, soon to be same old.

Badland: 
 

All cars are the same, so are their ads

Slip up. Thanx to Adlistmember Bot, who spotted these two twins. Apparently all cars are the same, and all your best ideas are formed while lying in the bathtub. classic.

Badland: 
 

Killer orginality.

Dress to kill - visual chalkline pun executed (ahem) in the same style. Finally an idea in a fashion advert, shame it's been done..

Badland: 
 

Paint by numbers - easy as 1-2-3

Many thanx to Dalbir, another funky adlist member, who spotted these twins. Did you know by the way, that them colorcharts are a *really* good source of inspiration?
