Too graphical?

Two southamerican posters, cheekily refering to each other.

Sing the praise of.. plagiarizing...

The singing body parts. Two commercials using a nifty post trick to make a body sing. Some body parts more gifted than others...

Opium Spikes Ale Sales

It had to happen. Deemed the most offensive ad of 2001, Opium's pale nude Sophie Dahl ad has inspired a Newcastle Brown spoof.

Adland-meme?

Clayton alerted me and the adlisters to a new site out there this morning, Marketing-Myopia.com, and I looked it over briefly, not all too suprised about it's similarities with Adland, until I read the part on how he found it:"FYI: This was found via a June 5 mention at zeldman.com Jeffrey Z's usually against this sort of thing, 'specially since his site's been scavenged by others so many times - is this Alanis Mor

Canadian and Australian beer infused rants!

Beer and patriotism go together - that's just the way it is. But to copy the famous Canadian "rant", except down in Oz? Now, don't be silly.

Adgrunts can view the commercials here: Molson Joe I am Canadian and Fosters I Believe

Otherwise, continue to the screenshots below.

Internet Ad Virus - looks like another Mahir trick.

Here we go again.

If you have seen KingFrank.com you might have had a sense of Deju Vu.. Another media-virus internet site? Oh yes, but it gets even better than that.....

Creative Hand Jobs

The most publicized "intellectual property" case in recent months has been mounted by Pets.com against a rubber puppet used on the Conan O'Brien show in a recurring skit.

Pets.com sued Robert Smigel, creator and voice of "Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog," to the tune of $20 million for defaming their "spokespuppet."

The irony is, Triumph is over three years old (in dog years that's the equivalent of 21). Pets.com introduced their sockpuppet only a year ago in August 1999.

Providing further evidence that Pets.com's puppet dog is a copycat is European ad sensation, Flat Eric, whose success proved that spokespuppets were a viable execution.

For a better grasp of this trend, read "Attack of the Puppet People."

Inspired by webmovies - or just plain lazy?

On the web funny clips have been circulating for as long as we could make them.. Animations, home movies, web-cams, you name it, it's out there..
But commercials using clips found on the web? Now there's an original idea...

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.....
