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."

wanted - an IDEA!

Have I told you once before? A layout is not an idea.

A layout can communicate an idea more or less effectivly - but never replace the idea. MmmKay?

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: 
 

More spoof ads (including milk..)

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery......
