The most blatant cases of advertising copy

The same idea, followed by the same visual image at different times came up with creatives from different known agentstv.K use the same idea in different advertising agencies can certainly take it easy and call it "mysterious coincidence" or " creative recycling. " But after egregious cases, like using the same pictures in the advertising of various brands like Dove and Epson, unwittingly raises the question of plagiarism.

Ideas, as you know, are in the air, and there is a possibility that one and the same thought at the same time come up with a few people. But in order to visualize the same one and the same idea, the two agencies shared time and kilometers, you should try both.

Following the mysterious coincidences in the TV commercials we focus on copying ideas and ways of implementation in print advertising. Here are a few examples of the most blatant cases of advertising copy.
