Mars' Skittles Super Bowl Ad Was A Direct Ripoff

Used the "Sheldon-Penny" comedy routing on the "Big Bang Theory" whereby Sheldon knocks repeatedly on Penny's door and calls her name many times in a row. Also, the throwing things against a window to get people's attention is so overused and unoriginal, too. Can't big company like this get better and more original advertising? Were they sold a bill of goods? I expected more from this ad which must have cost a "pretty penny". Just because it did does not mean that the ad should be a direct ripoff of a skit used repeatedly in a popular television program. If this was intentional, then the company and ad agency should be ashamed of itself. If not, then they should have known better. Unoriginal, boring, and trite - what a waste of money!
