Coke "Border patrol ad" Super bowl plays out like 8 PM whisky ad

Our first Superbowl Badlander is this pairing, yes, Coke did it again. Shoutout to Anantha who jogged my memory-cells, the Coke ad border-dispute idea was once done in an ad for whisky in India. Is this becoming a habit? Last year we found the Coke sleepwalking ad had been done as an Israeli yogurt-drink ad way back in 2001. Brainsync again! Drats.

Lets compare and contrast, shall we?

    Sad. I did like this spot. Well, I still do. It's a nice concept - for both products :)

    It's a classic story, I don't think they necessarily eyeballed the other ad. Just *ouch* considering last year.....
