Question isn't who. It's why? Why is this here? Hasn't DDB done a shite VW ad we can grizzle about recently?

Yeah the gags were similar, but the agency's 'idea' was to use that gag to make an ad with a releavant product and message.

So what's the big deal?
Blackwood used the Haka in an ad. It's been sued in ads heaps of times. Does that make their idea a rip off?
