Did this ad for gas chain 76 rip off Boing Boing's "Unicorn Chaser"? (video)

LOL, kinda. Video Link (thanks, John Battelle)


  1. When you do it to someone else, it’s “remixing”. When it happens to you, it’s “a rip off”.

    1. Yes.

      Similar to how other people’s stuff is “shit”, but your shit is “stuff”

    1. Hutz is the name, Mr. Antinous. Lionel Hutz, attorney at law.
      Here’s my card. It turns into a sponge when you put it in water.

  2. BB pretty much stands for the proposition that “ripping off” is not only okay, it’s to be encouraged, right?

  3. I hate that. I’ve had ThinkGeek rip a few ideas from me and they have a button on the product page “Invented Here”.  I’d love to see how the unicorn chaser in this commercial was invented by the art director ;)

  4. Did they use a clever inside joke as a subtle pop-culture reference to their favorite blog? BB uses “rip off” to describe it. -_-
