I have noticed this in at least 10 ads over the years, Queen has been ripped off lots of times too.
Also the Tobe commercial is a complete ripoff of the Mika lollipop video animation? Creative?
I didn't draw a parallel to the Mika song/video but they are similar
...but you never know in Taiwan...cheap arseness abounds even at the highest levels. For the China Life ad I would say it is very unlikely they have paid any royalties to Mika or the record company he is contracted to. Again a multi billion dollar public company!I didn't draw a parallel to the Mika song/video but they are similar
The adverts that get me are ones like the recent iPad copycat with fake Steve Jobs with angel wings. Not inspired at all

That reminds me of the Pom Pom men ad. Someone here was asking what was the point, and the point was copying from the movie 3 Idiots the shower dance scene, just because the movie was popular in Taiwan. Still a grey area copyright-wise.
can I quote you again for a laugh please Steve
