Pigeon Jazz

Agency Network: 
July 2012

Jazz is back in the city. On lookers were treated to an open air, freestyle jazz session recently, all played by pigeons. To promote the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz Festival 2012, TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris and production company Hey!Fever set up a full jazz ensemble in Pigeon Square, Johannesburg, South Africa. Seeds and popcorn were scattered over the instruments to attract the feathered musos. It wasn’t long before the sounds of pigeon jazz filled the air.

Ambient advertisment created by TBWA, South Africa for Standard Bank, within the category: Finance.

Very nice. I would have hated to be the person who had to clean the instruments after though.

Stolen. Plain stolen. To borrow and add something extra special is fine, but to to blatantly plagiarise and add nothing at all to the original idea is just not cool. This idea is a bad photocopy of this:

And let us remember the difference between theft and inspiration:

Keep being original, always. Forever.
