Default Wonderful compilation in one thread

I went through the entire thread. Would love to go over & over again evertime.

But, observed that the ad-world has become voilentely competitive, these days, with one trying to demean others, intead of proving outright superiority. The adverting bosses need to think out of the box.

This is an amazing thread. God knows why I'm seeing this so late. Brilliant stuff. Guess I have some similar stuff in my mail. Will have to dig them out.

I think all except the first one are untrue, can someone confirm having seen the 3 billboards together? Where is it?

Default BMW - Audi billboard war goes global

The wall above Audi of Hong Kong is so gigantic it visually consumes their dealership. BMW clearly understood that, buying the space to use for a gigantic middle finger-like billboard over their German competitor. The billboard wars just went global.

This whole tête-à-tête started last April when Audi put up a small billboard in California that said "Your move, BMW" with a picture of the Audi A4. BMW fired back with a giant picture of an M3 with the word "Checkmate" above it. Audi re-responded and that was the end of it until now.

Almost one year later BMW seems to have its response with an advertisement for the new 5-series above the Hong Kong Audi dealership. There's no explicit call out, but the BMW message is clear: you are our bitches.

Whether this was coordinated as a response to Audi's billboard or just an example of the cutthroat world of Asian car advertising is unclear. All we know is we can't wait to see how Audi responds.

Absolutely superb. The bloke at BMW who did this must be smiling all the way. Not sure how Audi fellows must have felt - Frustrated, I guess.

I am sure Audi will hit back. Time to wait and watch, for what could escalate into another ad-war.

PS - On the flip side, the large BMW hoarding might also attract attention to the Audi showroom.

Not an AD war but just felt like sharing this. Mods please shift this to the appropriate thread if deemed fit.
