I saw a new TV ad last night, featuring a big cube draped in red satin being flown over the city.

“Ooh,” I thought, “A new ad for Abbey!”

No – it was a new ad for IBM. But Abbey have been using a big red cube in their ads for ages!

And it was followed immediately by the B&Q ad. Featuring a big orange cube.

Just goes to show, there’s no such thing as an original idea.
