Last year when I commented on the fact that One Direction had ripped off Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar on Me with their song Up All Night, a lot of people told me that One Direction's "TEAM" seemed to be making a habit of ripping off other artists music for 1D and passing it off as their own. (Cough, The Clash, cough)
Over the weekend, I was shown THIS. It is a group called Club Feet, with their song, Everything You Wanted. The song seems to have got stuck in my head a little bit but that isn't what I want to show you. Check out the effects used in the video which were created by Melbourne production company, Oh Yeah Wow.
Then if you can bear it, check out One Directions latest offering, You and I. If you can't bear to sit through it all, skip forward to 2mins, 45 sec. (You're welcome)
Er, now doesn't that freeze technique look familiar? (Although Club Feet do it better)
Oh Yeah Wow are a little, miffed, at their technique being used in this way, and I can't say I blame them. Whilst I can't blame the 1D boys themselves, it seems that once again, there has been some (ripping off) "inspiration" going on here.
I would LOVE to know what you think about this, feel free to let me know your thoughts on One Direction using this technique for their latest video.
Let me know
