Uh-oh!

Beyoncé has been fighting off accusations of plagiarism recently, and now it appears that she'll have to deal with that again, this time regarding her video for Hold Up!

Visual artist Pipilotti Rist released a video way back in 1997 called Ever Is Over All that showed the Swiss artist smashing car windows while walking down a street — in many ways, a remarkably similar vid to what Queen Bey put out for her Hold Up track on Lemonade!!

Skeptical?! Ch-ch-check out Pipilotti's video for yourself (below)!!!

And of course, who can forget Bey smashing windows in Hold Up (below):

Hmmm…

Someone even made a side-by-side comparison showing just how close the moments are:

Obviously there are lots of minor differences, but the general angle of the video is remarkably similar to what Bey came out with a couple weeks ago… and with the plagiarism accusations already flying around the superstar, is this going to be something Beyoncé has to deal with again??

We doubt she ever comments on this, but it is inneresting, nonetheless…

What do U think?? Do U think Queen Bey straight up stole the idea for this video from Rist?!

Let us know in the comments (below)!
