Young Liberals acting like Old Liberals

June 4th, 2007

The Young Liberals have put out a couple of ads, “I’m a Liberal,” in which a cute young girl proclaims “Hi, I’m a Liberal,” and a fattish, geeky looking guy says “and I’m a PC.” Funny how PC looks like Stephan Dion, but the real problem with these ads are, they are direct, unashamed rip-offs of the Apple Mac/PC guy ads.

Of course, their designed to be obviously a take off on those ads, But it is just an unoriginal bit of copying.

Liberals. The old ones steal our money, the young ones steal ideas.

The ads can be found here.

    This is not what I would have criticized about these ads. Given the number of Apple/PC parodies are out there, this method is becoming a sort of popular culture-speak; a kind of in-joke that communicates to a significant number of people, precisely because it’s become so common.

    I haven’t watched these ads and don’t intend to because I’m sick of negative advertising, full stop. But the “stealing ideas” accusation is a little silly, in my opinion. Maybe these ads are unoriginal, but that’s sort of besides the point.
