That old adage of “Imitation is the best form of flattery” is bull. There is nothing fulfilling when your work is recreated without at least a hint of the source. The Olympus E-P1 Pen digital camera ad after the jump is a great example. It clearly rips off the video above which was posted three months ago. It wasn’t until the Internet erupted a few hours ago that Olympus credited the original creator in the YouTube “more info” section. Way to stay classy, Olympus.
