Zywiec anti-counterfeiting parody
The IPKat's Polish friend the talented Mr Rychlicki has sent him this video clip of an anti-counterfeiting parody which is based on an advertising movie made by the Polish brewery that owns the ZYWIEC trade mark for its apparently delicious beer. Says Tomasz,
"their whole campaign was based on the comparison that there may be different beer brands but they are almost as good as "Zywiec" and this "almost as ..." means a lot".Tomasz also mentions this clip on his website here.
