One Direction Accused of Plagiarism with 'You and I' Video
According to Entertainment Weekly, Australia's OhYeahWow claims the video is suspiciously similar to one the company created for Melbourne synthpop act Clubfeet. In the video, the five guys morph into each other as they walk along a deserted oceanfront pier.
Toward the end of the video, the quintet, now together as a group and in separate bodies, pull off a stunt in which they meet up with their own bodies, which are posed along the pier in different stances.
The Clubfeet video takes a slightly different approach in terms of location, but the facet of meeting up with one's body is widely explored throughout the video and is pulled off in a similar style, with the camera rolling along in front of them as the effect is displayed.
In a statement, OhYeahWow addressed the similarities.
