Creativity is often replicated in different forms or fashions.
Look at Apple. They used a minimalist design in their advertisements, often with just a product and very little text. This style was replicated time and again. Some replications happen on purpose while others are completely accidental.
I recently saw this happen again with Samsung’s most recent commercial. I doubt that the creators of the Samsung spot saw the commcerical from Hungry Howies. It is fun to see the humor similarities though!
This Hungry Howie’s spot was released in 2010.
Here is the newest Samsung spot!
