Are British Ads more creative than American ones?

From Bnet comes this fascinating article about why British ads are better than American ones. Whether or not you agree (I happen to), there is still an important lesson in here, particularly in his reason number 3, which talks about limitations often breeds innovation.

Don't believe it? Think Haiku, those short poems you wrote in elementary school. A few lines, tightly restricted syllabic structure, and yet, even now, when you are prompted to write one, something wonderfully creative emerges. The same thing can happen in any creative endeavor and the writer makes an end point worth reading.

If that's not enough, the ad for the black widow spider car is priceless!

Curious? Then go read it!
