... ... ...

Bet you're wondering why'd a company release three such identical ads at the same time, eh? But some of the more observant of you would notice the company names and realize they're three different brands entirely. Yes people, these are three completely unrelated ads by three companies who just happen to be in cars, that use the Touareg tribe (translated as 'People of the Veil') in a way that seems... similar.


The bottom one's for the Chevy Lumina, released in 2003. The middle pic's for the Nissan 4x4, released in 2005. The last, for the VW Touareg (yes, that's its name), was released in 2007.

I really have nothing to say. For once, I'm quite speechless. Can this sort of thing really happen? Does it have a point? I don't even know where to begin the insults cause I can't put my finger on the crime. Is this excessive 'borrowing' undertaken by fools who didn't bother to look at what their direct competition has been up to? Or is it straight-up stealing on the part of Nissan and VW in the hope that their ads somehow improve the image's message? (Nissan: "Well ours looks nicer!" / VW: "Well at least we named our car after the damn tribe!")


I don't know... I'll leave the theories and judgements to you. Give me insight, people. I really need it on this one.
