The copycat copywriter

The Simpsons taught me more about America and pop culture than anything else.* From the age of 9 I learnt about Edgar Allen Poe, the US school system and Rear Window, all thanks to the yellow denizens of Springfield.

Clearly I’m not the only one to have taken lessons from The Simpsons. A new advert for Unilever’s Plenty bears an uncanny resemblance to one character from series 17, episode 19.

See if you can spot the difference…

Plenty advert = Senior Ding Dong from the Simpsons
