I am really jealous when I see something really original and I think "Why haven't I thought of that?"

In this case when I see this spot all I can think is "Arent they ashamed to copy?"

Take a look at the originals, dont you consider it a copy?

I like it. Its a powerful truth. But not sure why the brazillian press has a british VO.

Also i think a more older, distinguished voice would work better, be more profound somehow. That guy sounds like manager of the month at jack in the box...

Wow I didn't know commas can do that!
Does the Brazilian press association sell commas? I need one for the first sentence.

The VO is for award shows. They never ever run an english commercial in Brazil. The original has a brazilian VO.

This is the original ad. To me, it's incredible that an agency will produce an entire different ad, just so it can be used in international award shows.

This was not made for festivals. I saw it on TV thousands of times here in Brazil. In portuguese, the text is almost the same!

I prefer the original ones, "The bottlle" and "The banana" that won in Cannes some years ago.
Don´t remember the name of the British newspaper that made them, maybe Nizan remembers which one it is...

It seems like DarkSide is a very jealous person.
This spot is brilliant.
