Is it possible to have three different companies create three different ads using the same basic idea within months of each other? Was fowl play involved in any way?
I was taking a look at what’s trending on Twitter, and was checking out hashtag #Android, and among the many popular tweets there was one about the new ad for the new LG G2 that explains its optical image stabilization using a chicken.
While it does a good job explaining the OIS, I find it extremely weird that it comes out just a few days after the Mercedes Benz ad, and Fujifilm also uploaded a very similar ad in February. I posted 12 commercials involving chickens a couple of days ago, and these two were among that list.
While the Mercedes Benz commercial is not about a camera, it’s hard to believe this is a coincidence. The biggest coincidence has to be among Fujifilm and LG, I mean, what are the chances of both companies explaining optical image stability using a chicken, and in the same year?
I’m not calling out on anyone here, but this is just too suspicious. I don’t think I’ve seen 3 different companies using the very same idea within months of each other, did they use the same advertising company or something? Or at least I don’t remember ever seeing something like that.
So who came first, the chicken, the chicken, or the chicken?
