Flattery

As we know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. You know National’s billboards are great when they inspire dozens of imitators. The only problem is that the imitations are only online, bot at 100 high traffic sites throughout NZ.

But for those who want to have a laugh, here are links to all the imitations I know of:

No Right Turn – Foreign Policy and Health

And more from About Town.

Scoop – modified Nat ones

More from Scoop.

Fighting Talk – various good ones

About Town – Race Relations, State Services et al

And finally from Not PC, some alternative words, but not pictures.

The funniest for me is the foreign policy one and the pride and prejudice one. The lamest is the style one.

As an aside could I suggest that people might want to remove the “Authorised by Steven Joyce” line on the parody ads. Technically they are breaching the Electoral Act by including that line, even as a parody.
