Ram and Shyam starring Maruti Vitara Brezza and Audi Q3. Yep, twins they are.

 
Maruti Brezza Teaser Copied

Maruti Suzuki published Vitara Brezza teaser on their website, which was a blatant copy of Audi Q3.

The premise of twins in Indian cinema however ridiculous, has held it’s own for far too many years. And even though Indian cinema goers have let go, Maruti Suzuki has not. Here’s presenting the teaser from Maruti Suzuki for 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, Ram and Shyam.

Oh yes, we checked, at first glance it’s a DNA match. You’d be astounded. An extra marital affair that would have gotten eyes rolling and tongues wagging, but then again they must have been discreet, real discreet. How else do you explain trying to present pre-facelift Audi Q3 as their upcoming Maruti Vitara Brezza.

Much too oft, folks say copying is a form a flattery. Surely that’s a weak defence. But even worse is blatant infringement. For years on end, we’ve witnessed innumerable instances of lifting content from foreign shores. It’s also been easy to get away with such daylight robbery because viewers may not have seen the original. That’s not true today. Maruti Vitara Brezza will never be Audi Q3. Never ever ever.

Maruti Suzuki is now a top contender for either being the most clueless manufacturer, or for believing they can get away with anything. While not encouraged, having similar taillights, or stance is now more a platform for comparision than complaint. But you’re surely bouncing off reality trying to say Maruti Vitara Brezza and Audi Q3 are the same in essence. Seriously, who even thought of slipping in this cheap gimmick. Worse still, Maruti couldn’t recognize it’s own car.

We hear a group of skilled artists are actually hired when designing marketing material. Now, we want to know where were they hired from?
