Agency Slams Own Ad to Gain More Publicity For It


Perhaps you've seen the Tango Clear spoof of the Sony Bravia ad which had colored balls roll down the hills of San Francisco. The Tango Clear ad does it with fruit and lots of it. Apparently, the ad, shot in Wales, has some residents in Swansea so upset, they've launched a cheesy looking website to protest against the damage all that fruit did in Wales and to state it will never happen in Swansea. Actually, a little Whois research points out the creators of the Tango Clear ad, Clemmow Hornby Inge, created the protest site apparently hoping to keep the fruit rolling a bit longer.

The agency's own site is just as bad. In fact, so bad that I couldn't even view it. C'mon guys, no need to have a javascript pop up to view a site.

Didn't seem to have a problem getting to the agency's site... In any case, very nice spoof ad. Perhaps, dare I say, even better than the original?

You may not dare to say better than the original. But yes, a very good spoof - no details missed.

Wales isn't in England! It's a Country in it's own right! Muppet!

I was reading on Indian advertising forum, something similar. One creative made a similar ad with just one ball rolling down the hill. It was an ad for a TV repair shop.

This is becoming a pattern. First the fake Muslim watchdof site slams the Poker viral (, and now this.

Perhaps, dare I say, a shameful, naked, plagiaristic attempt at hijacking the notoriety of someone else's creativity?
