More spoof ads (including milk..)

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

Underground bands are really unknown.

Underground bands are really unknown.. And that is part of the attraction, no?

Recycle your own ideas.

Instead of stealing good ideas from others - why not reuse your own?

Pin Up Girls Galore!

Sex sells - sex Varga's style sells even better. End of class.

Bilingual Heineken looses its shirt.

The Heineken twins - or; Stare at a logo long enough and you'll find ... that same very thing other people who stared at the logo found!

More Mustaches!

Milk Spoofs - as spofing that milk mustache campaign seems to be people's favorite pass time.

Bang! Bang! You're Copied!

The old "when women have guns" gag, executed almost identically on two separate posters..

Preem vs Good Guys Auto.

This is the most blatant ripoff that I have seen so far!
Note that even the lines are more or less directly translated, as in " It's an american car.." vs "It smells Swedish..".

The good guys auto ads was in the 1995 Communication Arts Annual, and I'm sure they won a nice bunch of addy, andy, beffie bessie, clio and other assorted awards.

A classic case of A and B ideas.

My old tutor Gillard used to rip our ads to shreads if we resorted to the left hand page "A" and the right hand page "B" idea. Here's a classic case of two A and B's with similar message.

Separated at birth? Three drinks do the same thing.

Three different product, (all drinkable - uh, no wait, that depends on who you ask..), three similar headlines, three identical propositions? What happened here?

Anna Nicole in H&M underwear distracts Norwegian drivers

This ad campaign may no longer run in Norway after several drivers have skidded off the road at the sight of the former Playboy model in a corset.

H&M are probably thrilled about the press.
