We are beyond appalled and disgusted. To so blatantly steal and copy every single detail of an original piece of work for commerce is foul and above all LAZY. Shame on BBDO and Dexim Shoes. Is coming up with your own idea so hard these days? Or is picking up a phone to hire Jamie and her team to shoot your campaign even harder? We have a hard time understanding how the "creatives" behind this shoot could be so obtuse as to not think anyone would notice their thievery -- and now their client looks bad. What this ad now tells us is that Dexim shoes are cheap, of low quality and are probably copied from other designers. Probably not at the top of their list of selling points.
