Here's a new one for the fodder - same visual - different idea. Try that one on for size.

Hmm...Well.. ........Same visual..Different subject.....Different idea...Same year.
I really like the "delightfully violent" driving game ad, since it is so simple slick, and, I get it, unlike the economist. (I think the economist is trying to say that it get you out of the red or something, but what do I know.. Besides, I'm not their target-market.. Obviously).
I think it was coincidence.....but what does the Economist one really mean?? Get you out of the red? :)) Share your views!
