Eng “The lookalike is so gigantic I don't even know where to begin. Same idea, same angle, same scenography, very same african landscape : perfect copy! But unfortunately for this creative team, Joe is like an elephant... he never forgets.”

Fr « Comme l'éléphant, c'est absolument énorme! La ressemblance va jusqu'au cadrage, à l'angle de prise de vue et au décor... Un éléphant c'est bien connu ça trompe énormément... mais pas Joe, qui lui, a une vraie mémoire d'éléphant! »

Be the judge!

    i dont think its a copy.

    we must realise that sometimes, we, the creatives think the same way-.

    winners go further though-.

    I agree with you but in this particular case it’s very hard to believe! The first one get noticed around the ad world and get a Cannes Shortlist… the second one came 6 years after. It’s not “parallel thinking” to me
