Great, In all seriousness I am interested to know if he can explain why it's so clever to mimic (in tone and style) Nike advertising for Adidas (same brand positioning and territory) and why switching the words "nothing is impossible" around is such an amazing thing.

Plus, tell us how "Impossible is nothing" is massively different from "Just do it"

It could just be me, but I think they may still be writing Nike ads for Adidias. Therefore the Adidas strategy is to copy Nike. Brilliant.

Another really constructive post. If you're going to disagree, try using intelligence, maybe even wit or even a counter arguement, otherwise re-read your own post.

Back on OP, never actually noticed the similarities. I'm looking forward to the seminar. Hopefully it won't be like AWARD and we'll actually be able to hear what he has to say.

To the "go kill yourself guy"

Were you born stupid or do you just pride yourself on working very hard at it?

Or is that your just a kid? Fifteen, sixteen maybe?

Your comments certainly sound like there from the mind of a child. So to you, the "go kill yourself guy", I say grow up, get laid, and crawl back into what ever fuggy office you call home. The advertising industry here in Australia is populate dwith enough knobs, without you contributing to the number.
