Aero ad mirrors YouTube skateboarding video

LONDON - JWT London's latest ad for Aero has come under scrutiny for copying an old skateboarding YouTube video.

The original video, filmed by Dave England, features Matt Beach skateboarding through a bowl filled with blue balloons.  The video was posted on YouTube back in 2007.

The Aero ad, feel the bubbles, features skateboarder Bob Burnquist riding through 50,000 brown (chocolate coloured) balloons in a skateboarding park in California.

The ad, directed by Ty Evans, was created by JWT London and launched last week.
