Published in February 2012, hmmmm how convinient 🙂
I have a confession to make, over the past 21 years in the industry I have had a reoccurring dream, I dreamed that one of these days i will have one of these clients that do not want to have their logo made bigger on their ad or not having a logo at all (just like this example) where this dream client was satisfied with part of his product can appearing on his campaign with part of his logo being visible.
NB. The 3D work is really nice and the idea is not bad at all, too bad the suites could not sell it to the client (if they had such a client that is).
When I shared this dream with the orginzers of the 2012 Dubai Lynx they were kind enough to take action by pulling the curtain on those who tried to pull the wool over our eyes 😉 I guess “Justice will be served” is an appropirate title for this campaign after all LOL 😉
A copycat is a person that mimics or repeats the behavior of another. The term is often derogatory, suggesting a lack of originality. The expression may derive from kittens that learned by imitating the behaviors of their mothers. – Wikipedia.
