Lameness Abounds

I don’t read Slovakian*, so it’s hard to determine precisely what’s going on with the ads above, but it looks like Heinz and KFC have the exact same visual cliches running for different spicy products.
I know there are no new ideas, but on the heels of the One Show call-for-entries debacle, thievery is beginning to look like a trend.

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.


  1. Indiana Gividen says:

    Again another uncreative idea allegedly stolen.

  2. Again it’s not just the “idea,” but the execution, that has been lifted. Which leads me to believe there’s no coincidence here.

  3. in site COLORIBUS in section http://www.coloribus/admirror there is hundreds ads clones.
