Eng “The creative idea: A story about misunderstanding local traditions. A foreigner (a middle aged man) tries to be polite with his hosts, and is constantly refilled (soup or coffee) until he is completely saturated, because he does not know the local habits and customs. Both ads are for a bank, and the first one is a real classic! Copycat or coincidence? Be the judge!”

Fr « L'idée créative : un étranger essaie de se montrer poli avec ses hôtes, et se fait resservir sans arrêt (de la soupe ou du café) jusqu'à saturation complète, car il ne connait pas les us et coutumes locales. Les deux spots sont pour des banques, et le 1er est un vrai classique. Recyclage discret ou coïncidence? »

Be the judge!
