Anubis gets foul-mouthed competition

Dear old Louai Alasfahani, scourge of the dishonest, champion of originality, beloved by everyone. Ok, beloved by some. Well, a few. Anyone?

You sir, at the back? Oh. Just scratching your nose. I see.

Er, anyway, beloved or not, Alasfahani clearly takes a certain amount of delight in pricking the pomposity of purloiners and generally doing his best to point out what he sees as dishonest advertising, whether it be scam ads, copycats, or whatever – and generally he doesn’t mince his words.

But it seems his outspoken style may be under some pressure from an international upstart blog, the charmingly-named Copycunts.

Sorry, but that’s what it’s called.

Eschewing the wry humour or moral outrage of other plagiarism-focused outlets, Copycunts goes straight for the motherlode: swearing and creative insults.

A sample: “You pile of unfathomable cunts. Try doing this with your fingers – pick up a pen, then place the tip on a blank piece of paper, then have an original idea, then write it down. In the likely event that you fail to have an original idea, simply reverse the pen in your grip and lower your eyeball onto the tip. Then continue to lower your eyeball until you are blind. Then continue until your are dead.”

How nice.

Another sample, this time from guest contributor ‘Big Trouble In Little Vagina’: “This ad is like your 110th wank. It’s lazy. Half arsed. Shameful. Painful. Boring.  And the pitiful dribble of ‘creativity’ that is threaded through this cluster-rape of a spot is laughable – rather like the clear liquid that slopes out of your cock-end during the contemptible finale of your vinegar stroke. The creative team managed to conjure the equivalent of watching the Transformers and, seconds later, ‘thinking up’ the mighty Go-Bots. Fuck off.”

What an utterly charming description.

In any case, we will be looking forward to making regular visits to Copycunts from now on, to keep abreast of some of the latest in international ad plagiarism, along with some of the best swearing since In The Loop.

So, Louai… any plans to up your game…?

DISCLAIMER: By publishing this article, AdNation does not condone, approve of, or in any way imply, infer, suggest or make reference to swearing as being at big and/or clever. Furthermore, AdNation fully asserts that swearing is in fact a poor substitute for reasoned debate and dialogue, and should not be used by anyone at any time, ever.

And if you don’t believe us, you can go fu–

Louai Alasfahani

ANUBIS was a very old god of the ancient Egyptians, universally worshipped throughout the land and became considered the gatekeeper and ruler of the underworld; the “Guardian of the veil“ he was “Lord of the Cleansing Room” and the opener of the roads of the North. “He observed the weighing of the deceased’s heart against the feather of Maat [Truth] and reported his findings to the jury of the gods.
