Human brains are not that different from one another. Aside from deliberate plagiarism, it's inevitable that creative ideas are sometimes repeated elsewhere. Those who thought of this idea before me have my respects.

sorry ssguixi, but those ads you posted are not the same idea. Similar yes, the same, no.

They use barbed wire thats the only similarity, they say that the sounds are painful, they don't say when you pee its that painful.

By that logic barbed wire can never again be used in an ad to represent pain, and neither should anything else thats ever been used; people, vehicles, places, animals etc.

Joe, you need to set up a 'has it been done' service, we send you our concepts and you give them a green tick if you've never seen it and a big red cross if you have. I'd pay for that.
