Align, Maligned!

November 2, 2011

Sometimes there is room for interpretation when it comes to ‘borrowing ideas’ in art. I have no problem with subtle references to other works, little respectful nudges in the original creator’s direction. Plenty of great art is pretty much a remake of an older great art. Like Sunshine to Event Horizon, or Always Sunny to Seinfeld. Like Family Guy to The Simpsons.

Does anyone remember this commercial:

But what is really original these days? Nothing is entirely original, and if nobody remembers who did it first, who really cares?

If they can re-make The Thing, why not re-make ‘that V8 commercial from 1989?’
