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 This was the mere beginning of Ghost plan of raising unpublished ads up on the pedestal they deserve.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..
First up, the grand prix of Cannes 2002, second, Missing Links campaign for the same shop in 1999. Interestingly they both hung posters on dogleash holders and other places for "piercing" a poster = same unusual media idea too!
Remember the Diet Coke commercial where cheeky female office workers organized "Diet Coke breaks" to drool over a construction worker named Lucky?
Well, they're back again (at least the creative concept is) and they now have eyes for an Imagistics photocopier repairman!
How many buff construction workers you know drink diet soda? Maybe the repairman should fix the ladies' Gay-dar!
This month the ict have brung down it`s axe on many ads.
This ad,which featured a very short life (Literally,it lasted thirty
seconds) received 160 complaint`s resulting in it being banned from TV.Although,as with French connection,this don`t stop them keeping it on their website at http://www.playmore.com
i can see why this one was banned,as i didn`t really like it.
Badland hypothesis 1: It's bad enough when you're forced to use stock footage. It's worse when the money guys are too cheap to buy exclusive rights to the scenes.
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.

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.
Good Grief - How blatant can you get?
Two products: Evian and Aquafina

Back in 1999, Unilever had a big ol' hissy fit over a couple of now legendary 3DO Battletanx commercials that used a parody version of their effeminate and fey Snuggle dryer sheet bear.
A commercial here in India has been ripped off from one of the old showbook, but for the life of me I cannot remember which showbook *exactly*.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.

At first I thought it was the kid's Levis that made him walk funny... but I later found out, it wasn't what he was wearing, but what he was drinking!
