I see ghosts - plural!

Here's a dupliclaim I never thought would happen, but I have seen many many ghosts lately.

First spook encounter was in March and later in April when an interview with Jeff Goodby - done by a ghost - was sent out planet wide. This was the mere beginning of Ghost plan of raising unpublished ads up on the pedestal they deserve.
These ghosts later invaded Cannes during the adfest to scream a different kind of booh than usually heard in those parts.

here comes the second ghost..

Badland hypothesis 2: An agency with two clients. Brainstorm! We'll use the same location and crew for two different clients, air both at the same time and bill each one the full charges. Ka-ching! No one will ever find out!

Badland hypothesis 3: A 1-in-a-bajillion freaky fluke. At least one agency had the aesthetic good taste to get rid of that annoying power line.

Mitsubishi vs. Volkswagen

I scream, you scream, we all scream for originality! But, sometimes the creatives just can't help but have similar ideas.

These two car commercials have two things in common: 1) the airport and 2) kids eating ice cream.

The Volkswagen spot was created by BMP DDB UK and the Mitsubishi spot was created by Deutsch LA.
