Okay, I never spew shit on this blog but I think it's pretty fucking shameful how blatently ripped off 42 Below that is. I know some people talked about this last week but this is the first time I've seen it. Embarrasing. Extremely ironic that the ad is about stealing. I want to vomit on you.

Interesting side point: NZI is actually an Australian owned company.

Sorry about the name errorr - bloody insurance companies and their acronyms. Clearly a branding problem.
Believe NZI is owned by IAG - oh look, another acronym

laughed a lot when we got the 42 below ads in the UK but how could you present that as a creative concept to a client - jeesshh

You make sure your client used to work in advertising.

I saw it hard on the heels of the kiwi bank thing (a ripoff itself, of course, of that Flight of the Conchords thing for some UK Telco) and thought it was for the same client. Or is it just that every marketing manager out there wants their very own "L&P"?

While we're here, nice to see SPOT wasn't dead at all, just waiting for the call from Pizza Hut. Woof!

That is the most appalling ripoff I have ever seen! What the fuck were Colenso thinking?! I'd be to ashamed to even put my name to it!
