Lin Chi Ling (林志玲) Osim uSoffa inspired by Apple's Fruity iMac Ad?

After watching the latest OSIM uSoffa TV Ad starring Taiwanese hottie Lin Chi Ling (林志玲) certainly reminds me of Apple's G3 iMac ads. Both are leading brands in their industry. Of course, the latter is lot more prominent than the former.

Apple's G3 (3rd generation PowerPC-based iMac) Advert

In fact, sometime back OSIM released a range of product-line called "iLife" which incidentally is the same as Apple's standard suite of multimedia bundled with every newly purchased mac. Apple's iLife consist of iMovie, iPhoto, iDVD, iWeb & Garageband. Shortly after, OSIM changed their naming convention to "u" instead of "i".

 Imitation is the highest form of flattery?


  1. Such a terrible advertisement! No appeal in any form. Clearly see iMac's commercial and compare the standards of that osim tv commercial. watching it, is either the creative director is useless, doesn't have that capabilities, or not doing his job as the head of creative. Really reflects the quality in standards of that advertising agency. Probably, the film director must have got paid really cheap for such a terrible commercial. For OSIM to even accept this quality, maybe they better think of passing it to other advertising agency. I wish the very best for OSIM when they can even accept such a commercial. Maybe i should approach OSIM, since they can approve COPYCAT ideas and such low standard of a commercial and i'll earn their money since they r such suckers!

  2. Maybe you should take if it wouldn't for Lin Chi-Ling, I won't for once even notice that ad. The director might be lowly paid but I'm sure the Taiwanese model wasn't : )

    Btw, thanks for the comment.
