With the emergence of that Oh Yeah Wow article, esp this close to the tour, I can /feel/ that things are about to get very awkward, very fast. I agree that this kind of thing should be talked about but I'm really, /really/ not going to enjoy seeing the boys called out on this (as much as it needs to happen). It sounds dumb but it's hard seeing your faves called out on doing something like that.

verily-i-say:

I know exactly how you feel. Ben absolutely needs to answer for his actions, but unfortunately and unfairly, when this story starts gaining traction it’s going to reflect badly on the boys, more than on him.

Based on Oh Yeah Wow’s tweet, it looks like they tried to address this with Ben’s production company privately, but didn’t get anywhere, so Ben’s doubly at fault here; first for ripping off the idea and again for unnecessarily forcing this conversation into the public sphere.

Remember that time when Ben Winston called a fan’s idea for a music video cheesy? At least it was a bit more original…

OH YEAH WOW - NO DIRECTION

"Late Friday night whilst we were busy observing the good traditions of the public holiday, something very suspicious was brought to our attention. It seems that the chaps of One Direction have taken it upon themselves to regurgitate our original concept, as seen in our award-winning clip for Clubfeet’s Everything You Wanted. Don’t get us wrong, we here at Oh Yeah Wow are big One Direction fans and are envious of their ability to maintain flawless hairdos.

(yes 1d fans, we are aware ours doesn’t have the creepy facial morph stuff, we’re specifically talking about the 3rd act)

Sadly, we’re actually kind of used to it now. This isn’t the first time that the concept for this video has been hijacked; we have experienced plagiarism from all over the globe, including bands from Japan, Turkey, Thailand and Poland, some of which have been taken down due to so much public backlash.

To be crystal clear, OYW has nothing against creative evolution. Artists constantly reinterpret other works that have inspired them and we’re fine with people taking a technique and using it to create something new- our clip for Gotye was loosely based on the genius short film Tango by Zbigniew Rybczynski, for example.

The wider problem is, that plagiarism and copycatting is becoming increasingly common and acceptable. When did we, society, become so complacent as to allow this kind of behaviour to become normal practice in the media industry? It is for this very reason we have decided (this time) to rally some support- for the last thing we want is a generation of kids labelling our Clubfeet video a One Direction rip off in years to come.

Considering the sleep deprivation one must endure to create an original piece with practically no budget, you can start to understand the annoyance we might feel when some affluent young bucks and a director devoid of creativity, decide to effectively steal (and subsequently dilute) our idea.
