What kukubird is that??

A colleague of mine sent me a touching video relating to a relationship between father and son.

With Father’s Day in the corner, let’s be nice to our Dad for a day.

But the video above is awfully similar with one of Petronas’s advertisements that I saw couple of years ago..

Both videos had the scene where the son scolded the father for asking repetitive questions about a bird. Both video also conveys the same message. .

So who copied who? As much as I want to conclude that Petronas’s advertisement copied the Greek short film, I don’t think its right for me to do so. From the Youtube pages, it was stated that both videos are created in 2007. Coincidence?

  1. Wow, this is the second Yasmin Ahmad video that’s being circulated that’s almost exactly like a foreign film. The first one I heard of was about the scene from Good Will Hunting being copied for an ad for Singapore’s MCYS. Hmm…

  2. ” With Father’s Day in the corner, let’s be nice to our Dad for a day. ”

    Be nice to our dad for a day? Just one day?

  3. i dont think it matters who copy who of influence. As long as the message n value is conveyed to more widespread audience in different country, thn it’s fine.. i guess: D
