The copying machine !!!

“Man is an idiot. He doesn't know how to do anything without copying, without imitating, without plagiarizing, without aping. It might even have been that man invented generation by coitus after seeing the grasshopper copulaate"

A great ad made by O&M Mumbai for Tata Sumo Grande and on air since April 08...
It has all the ingredients of a good ad ..short and sweet.. a story being broken...a built up to the subtle humour and the climax.. Fair enough !!! Not until you see the next ad !!!

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery they say and yet for me it looks odd that inspite of the small changes what I would like to call as "cultural adaptations" the idea is the same..
It is blatant and unconcealed copying of an Idea and replicating it....
What happened to the Idea mills in the worlds greatest creative power house??
