Eng “There's no need to speak portuguese to understand that it's a pure copycat! The strangest thing is that both campaigns came from the very same country... anyone knows more about this mysterious case?”

Fr « Pas la peine de parler le portugais pour comprendre que ces deux pubs sont totalement identiques! Le plus étrange (voir incompréhensible) c'est que ces deux campagnes sont sorties, certes à 4 ans d'intervalle, mais dans le même pays! »

Be the judge!

    Dear Mr. La Pomp,

    we are astonished by the discovery of this piece of work from Jornal A Tribuna (The Tribune Journal). As agency of Jornal Agora until 2006, W/Brasil created the original TV spot. Washignton Olivetto, former president of W/Brasil and current Chairman of WMcCann is used to be honnored with pieces that make reference to his work. However, this time, he says: “They say immitation is a form of tribute. This time it they may have exagerated in the tribute”.
