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: 
 

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.....

Greenpeace vs Designstudents

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

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!

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.

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?

Badland: 
 

Parkbench media - used well.

Pro Bono and park bench media seems to go hand in hand around the world. Same idea I say. Rip-off artists.

Play with your food part one

If you are going to advertise anything with/about/or for food, creatives tend to play with it like little children...

Badland: 
 

Rip-off .. Or not?

Reported in the trade-press - here's a pair I think have *nothing* at all in common - really!

Badland: 
 

Nazi Meat.


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.

Nazi Meat?
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?

Play with your food part TWO

Oh yes - there are more ads where people play with their food. Seems we'll never run out of these!
