Joe la Pompe, since 1999

“Masked to unmask copycats.”

Don’t push me / Faut pas pousser!

Eng “A classical ad (Bronze Lion) ripped-off frame by frame... even the car color remained the same. Only some details had changed : the guy is replaced by a sexy girl, and the black man isn't black anymore... very representative of the contemporary state of mind? (not to say more...)”

Fr « Un classique détourné ni vu ni connu? Pompé et recopié quasi plan par plan! ... ils ont "poussé" très loin l'art du recyclage. Apparemment là bas (mais où?) on n'a jamais entendu parler de / Ce qui me gène un peu aussi c'est le fait d'avoir remplacé le rasta par un blanc, et le gros par une bimbo... vraiment pas très classe! »

Be the judge!

    Great catch. There is a Bulgarian version that is 99.99% copy of the original, the only thing they changed is the name of the chocolate bar!!!!!!!!!! I will try to find it and share it with you. the brand name is Morena or Moreny.

    Everything in the TV is not original anymore…

    just look at any channel at the best hours (8pm-10pm) and all shows are making parodies and bad copies of something else

    It seems there is no creativity anymore…

    I found the Bulgarian version of the same ad. what a shame. it is this ad that skyrocketed the chocolate bar sales in Bulgaria and placed it ahead of its competitors.

    Yet another copy. If I’m not wrong, it’s 1999 Bulgaria.
