it's a clever way to stick out. disabling javascript is a quick workaround, but by then your message has already reached its AOTW target.

If you're that worried about copycats, dont submit your work. Sorry, but I dont need to be labeled as guilty when all I'm trying to do is look at your damn work. Trust me, you're not that important.

--------------------------

Here, let me save everyone the trouble of asking. "Do you even work in advertising?"

Don't hate. This is a great idea. I am a firm believer in burning the award books.

Das Einzige, das wirklich schade ist, ist dass die Anzeigen, mit denen sie´s gemacht haben, mit Sicherheit nicht kopiert werden. Die sind einfach zu schlecht. Nichtsdestotrotz tolle Aktion.

Hello

I think even this ad could be done better:

When you draw the ad on your desktop you will see just a white window.
HL: Don't steal ideas.

So, JvM, please don't copy the idea.

Those Mercedes ads are not really worth copying.

Very clever use of media.
But on the otherhand I can't persuade myself to like this; it's very JVM to think everyone in the world is trying to hack their scam work. JVM, go put in another 23 hour work day, pat yourself on the back and then tell everyone how great you are. For a self promotion it seems cocky not confident, never a true sign of greatness.

I don't get it... Just right click in Firefox and click View Image.

JvM creativity is basically: surfing the internet, finding a good idea and sticking the brand-label on it, that´s pretty all!
