'It has been done before a 1,000,000 times!'

S: It has been done before a 1,000,000 times!
A: Totally agree. I've seen the colour 'red' in a million ads.
D: You can't own (in a literal sense) a colour.

T: This 'red' colour ad was already dead in the 80's.
H: Yeah, so 80's. I did the same idea about 6 years ago.
A: 6 years ago was year 2001, dude. Not the 80's.
T: I bet you got thousands of 'red' ads in your book!

B: And what with the headline? Using the word 'the' again?
A: Yeah, every ad seems to have 'The' nowadays.
D: Except those logo/product at the bottom right corner ad.

I: Yeah, that's been done at least 1,000,000 times too.
D: And some of them in 'red' too! Everything's been done!
E: Everything's been done! And all of it has been posted.
A: DONE BEFORE! DONE BEFORE!! DONE BEFORE!!!
S: BEEN THERE.. DONE THAT..

A: I wish they at least change 'The' into something creative.
R: Like what?
E: How about street lingo? 'Da Economist'

G: And drop the 'red'!
O: Yeah, the client's wife prefers pink.
O: I'm a suit, by the way.
D: It figures.

I: Pink has also been done before!
D: Ah! But not Pantone Pink #1167!
E: What's the value of saying "done before"?
Apart from showing us all how 'with it' you are.
S: DONE BEFORE! DONE BEFORE!! DONE BEFORE!!!

D: Is the world running out of ideas??
O: No, just colours.
N: And adjectives!
E: And from the looks of it, Creatives who aren't bitchy.

A: MILLION TIMES BEFORE!!!

I think, what you've written has been done before! :)

jokes apart, i think ppl derive a redeeming sadistic pleasure, when they see a good pull. Even if it remotely resembles some pull made centuries ago, without much ado they'll shout from the rooftops and announce, "It's been done", "It's been done"...

Cheers!

muahahha!
I guess that's why people do it.

And I derive a redeeming sadistic pleasure of making fun of it.
