Friday farcicals

The IPKat has learned from his learned colleague Tomasz Rychlicki that, on 18 November 2007, the Polish Patent Office announced the winning creative artists who submitted their artwork in a contest to design a poster on the subject of industrial property law. The poster depicted here, from a previous competition, was created by Magdalena Rogowska, a graduate student of the Higher School of Applied Arts in Szczecin.

Tomasz's weblog is, incidentally, connected to the next item from Brandrepublic, sent in by Paul Garland (Kemp Little), concerning Wonderbra's viral spoof of the Cadbury gorilla ad, featuring a model in a bra, which was pulled from YouTube after Phil Collins Limited claimed that the material was infringing its copyright. Wonderbra recreated the Cadbury's Dairy Milk ad for a viral campaign, replacing the gorilla with a 20-year-old model dressed only in a Wonderbra and jeans. She mimicked the gorilla's movements, drumming along to the Phil Collins' song 'In the Air Tonight'. As Brandrepublic explains:
The camera focuses on her chest more and more as the ad progresses and it ends with the line "Two cups full of joy".
The ad may be on YouTube no longer, but it lives on, thanks to Tomasz, here. Says the IPKat, if you want to compare the ads, the original Dairy Milk ad is still on YouTube, here. Adds Merpel, unlike the Wonderbra girl, the gorilla is topless -- and in urgent need of a good depilatory. More than you probably want to know about 'In the Air Tonight' here.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
