Today’s Ad Ripoff Inclusion: German Mickey D’s vs. Red Robin

By Michael Musco 

Rip off alert! DDB Berlin has a right to be peeved (if they’re even aware) that Minneapolis’ Periscope blatantly nicked the concept of its McDonald’s ad from 2007 (directed by Jake Schreier)  in the latter’s most recent Red Robin spot. There’s really not much more to say; we’ll let our readers be the jury, but, they do seem quite similar, no? Brief German credits after the jump.
