An Aussie blogger just back from a trip to NZ, points out that the current BMW 'Pinball' outdoor poster in Auckland, created by Colenso BBDO, is the same concept as an outdoor poster created by FCB Melbourne for Honda two years ago. It was featured in CB's 'Seen+Noted' at the time.

pinball machine tv ad with ford fiesta as the ball.

a link to " Le Copie?" French ad site. scroll down to the bottom of thepage to see 5 print ads that use cars and pinball machines.

That's 5 print ads, 2 billboards and tv spot.

advertising creative process... find something that looks cool and make it the same but different.

if ever the title "creative" was a misnomer it's here.

Hysterical. FCB whinged about this when someone did this about a year and a half ago. They still think their's is the original. The idea has been done about a million times since the nineties.

If its a great ad, no one is allowed to touch it with a 20 ft pole. Yet many crap ads with corny puns get left alone. hmmmmmm.

Funny medium, outdoor. Very challenging and top marks to the Comalco team for giving it a red hot go. Can't really say we wish that particular execution was in our folio but we'd kill to have the brief on our desk!
