Estrella and McCann sell nuts by ripping off Geoffrey Cottenceaus "Animaux" visuals

We've seen Badlanded ads that copied art before. Toshiba's "space chair" looked like Simon Faithfull's escape vehicles, Forever21's billboard looked like "hand from above", Honda Cog was a bit too close to Der Lauf Der Dinge, and in selling art the billboard art was imitating art, not to forget that these condom ads inspired by "head shots" (and later gamefaces). Yup. So here we go again, selling nuts in Sweden and Norway by way of a Swiss artists visual expression.

It's artist Geoffrey Cottenceaus "Animaux" series that clearly has inspired Estrellas campaign for assorted nuts. McCann Norway who created the campaign have admitted to Dagens Media that they have never contacted the artist. Now the campaign is running in Sweden as well, and still nobody has spoken to Geoffrey Cottenceaus. Crazy, right? Nuts, even. (Pun!)

Anyone else feeling the similarities between Spiegel Icons and Billboard icons?

So, everyone remember the Billboard Magazine kickass Cannes Grand Prix winning "Icons" ads, where the images of famous musicians would be made with red, yellow, blue and black images of other musicians? Yeah, it was tres clever, especially the little photo booths where you could get one of these images made from a photo of you.

Kind have an itch to scratch here. It reminds me a tad of the Spiegel campaign from DDB Dusseldorf made in 2006. Hundreds of wee icons would make the images of Bush, Mao and the iconic portrait of Che - little bombs, oil drills, that sort of thing.

Just me? Either way, they're still a little different.

Denver Deo copies Bavaria from every angle....

This post comes from a discussion me and Joelapompe had over email regarding the Bottle voodoo between Bavaria and Brutal Fruit badlander. Seems we're not quite done with the hypnotic bottles quite yet as we've found a brand new ad, created in India that has such a bad case of Demo Love it looks like it's an adaptation ad.

Lets watch Denver Deo, shall we?

Bikini babe comes out of the water just as Denver Deo guy lifts deo-can out of his bag, then everything he does with the bottle mysteriously affects the woman as well. Until the point where he takes the cap off, and she teasing begins undoing her bikini-bottom, but *zing* she was just teasing him all along.

Gee, where have I seen that before? Oh wait, I know I know *waves hand in the air* pick me pick me! The Marca Bavaria ad that aired in 2003 in Canada, that's where!

Mon-tage twins: New Zealand's TV3 vs Sony Playstation 3

Well lookie here what Buttonmasher dug up from their forums and passed on to Agencyspy. Mon-Tage Twins!

In the NZ version corner we have comedian Dai Henwood calling out "Mon Tage" and the clip ends with a headbanging hardrocker raising hell and confetti with his electic guitar riff.... In the US version from Deutsch LA, we have Kevin Butler delivering the "Mon Tage" line before explosions and action lead us to the headbanging hardrocker dude and his riff in the confetti.

Yeah. Twins. Told ya.

See?

Huggies Jeans Diapers show fashion reaching the wee ones, approx 3 years later than in Europe

Adage writes about the Huggies jean-diaper effort in "Are Those Designer Diapers You're Wearing?" - and note : But for all that, what may really be driving the category is fashion.

You discovered this now? The Huggies print and commercial were released in May, the jean diapers are a summer item only and available June-July at Amazon and participating stores - but Libero has with Forsman and Bodenfors help been doing toddler summer fashions in Sweden since 2007 when unstable toddlers walked down a runway wearing the bling-bling diapers.

The Cannes Copy-Cat-Copy Xerox ad spotted by the Copycat-ad King & Queen

The most ironic moment in Cannes during the festival was when me and French Badland King Joelapompe are strolling down the Croisette and we see these ads. Conversation goes a little like this;

- Look at that, Joe says, copy-cat ads. Like "Joelapompe". I bet they even took the images from my site.
- That's totally been done before as far as I recall. For Xerox, too.
- Yes, it has, I have it at home. I can make a post.
- I don't like the line. "If you make a copy, copy right". Pun!

Then it was simply a race to who would post it first. Joelapompe won - but in my defense he left a whole day earlier than I did. ;)

Was Forever21's augmented reality Times Square billboard inspired by "hand from above"?

Looks like we've found yet another case similar to the Toshiba chairs in space that looked like Simon Faithfull's chairs in space.

There's currently an Augmented Reality Billboard in Times Square for Forever 21, and while it's not a clever PSA mirroring peoples behaviour to make a point, it uses the same neat-o tech to make a 50 foot woman on the billboard interact with the crowds on the street. She even picks people up and throws them off the screen.

MoFilm invited "Forrest Gump" director to London Film Festival as apology for rewarding a copy

MoFilm has invited the original "Forrest Gump in one minute" director to the London Film Festival, as the guest of MOFILM and the One Minute One Take film will be shown during the MOFILM London Film Festival ceremony.

We would like apologise unreservedly once more for this error. We didn’t realise that the film that we chose was a copy, we would have instantly removed the submission from the competition if we had. As it stands, the original winner has now had their prizes revoked and we will be announcing a new winner soon.

Dutch Football Federation Supporter Shirts go straight to Badland without passing Go

Amsterdam based creatives Bas van de Poel and Daan van Dam made these clever T-shirts where Dutch football supporters can flip their shirts over their heads and become their favorite player as they root for their team.

Clever, right? Yes, it's very funny, and highly apropos as football players are known for yanking their shirts over their heads in celebration. However, we've seen this fun trick before.

Resident Evil made t-shirts that turned you into a Zombie when you pulled them over your head, and a little later Burger King made a King-tee with the same "pull over head" idea, which sent them straight to Badland.

Why the message on Wonderyears site reads These images have been removed due legal issues we can only speculate.
