Law vs. Nature, ad infinitum.

By my count, there are at least three competing corporate law firms out there running near exact animal metaphor print advertising campaigns. Sigh. It’s time for the latest wild kingdom puzzle ad. Ready boys & girls? Here we go. Firstly—I seem to be a common, disease-carrying housefly, right? How flattering! Secondly—the iguana is…an ugly, hungry enemy lawyer? Finally: I guess that leaves your firm as the mason jar (thanks for the air holes, btw. but where’s the grass? food?). I have a couple of questions: 1. How thick is the glass on that jar? 2. What if the judge disallows the mason jar? 3. How much will the mason jar cost me?

What is it with law firms and animals?

The iguana is staring at the lid. The fly is looking at the camera. There is more to this ad than simple hunter-prey logic.

You know, it would seem impossible to get a mixed metaphor on film... but those stock collections come through 10 times outta 10.

Actually, it's a bearded dragon, not an iguana.
