Eng “A fake bird poop used to advertise a car wash center. The real joke here is to try to make us believe that this is a new idea!”

Fr « Merde alors, ça a déjà été fait! C’est du propre. La vraie blague c’est d’avoir essayé de nous faire croire que l’idée était neuve. Décidément, du côté de la Serbie on essaie de nous prendre pour des pigeons. »

Be the judge!

    The idea from the right is mine, it’s from 2012. There are similarity but I haven’t seen the idea from the left never before.

    @Miroslav ok thanks for your comment. It was posted on adsoftheworld in 2016 that’s why I made the mistake. I’ll correct it. I believe you, but you could have run a priority search. It was easy to find out it was already done!

    I made priority search all around the net and haven’t find anything similar to this idea. I’m sorry if someone think I copied his idea, I was 100% sure I came up first with this. It happened to me many times that someone stole my ideas and I’m fighting against that all my life.

    Look at this guy. He even copied the shape of my leaflet http://itsjoshfein.xyz/Soapy-Suds-Car-Wash

    Second version is done better. No harm in a previously done idea inspiring a new version of it.
    Same as doing a cover version of a song.
    Nobody owns ideas, only the intellectual property of actual executions of them.
