One Direction's You & I Music Video Could Be A Complete Concept Rip Off!? Decide If The Boys Are Copycatting HERE!

anigif enhanced 14700 1397836459 25

One Direction displayed some AH-Mazing cloning effects in their newly premiered video for You & I, but now, it's being called a total rip off!!

Let us explain, faithful Directioners…

Australian production company OhYeahWow noted that the Ben Winston-directed vid looked a lot like another clip made for Australian band Clubfeet.

In a recent statement, the company claimed its similarities, while staying on 1D's good side by shedding compliments left and right:

"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. 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…The wider problem is, that plagiarism and copycatting is becoming increasingly common and acceptable."

The band hasn't addressed the accusations of plagiarism—but with the internet a flutter, we're sure they'll have to soon!

Ch-ch-check out both videos and decide whether 1D ripped off the original idea…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Snooki's Fragrance Lawsuit Called "Baseless!" Was Her Big Legal Stink All For Nothing??

Filed under: Legal MattersSnookiFragranz!GIFs

Excell Brands made a blatant rip off of Snooki's fragrance and have no problem admitting it, but they\'re asking the judge to throw out Snooki\'s lawsuit based on their claims that the rip is legal!

As we reported over the summer, Snooki thinks Excell Brands totally ripped off her fragrance!

After the Jersey Shore star released her own eponymous scent, Excell began selling a similarly packaged product called Snazzy that was even marketed with the line: "our version of Snooki by Nicole Polizzi."

Yup, they included her real name and everything!!

But in December, Excell filed a brief asking the judge to throw out the case, since they claim the lawsuit is “baseless”.

According to the brand:

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen Accused Of "Ripping Off" Other Lines!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionOlsen TwinsVogueThe Row

Celebrity stylist Lysa Cooper accuses the Olsen Twins of ripping off other lines for The Row!

We know they're twins, but could they be copycats???

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen transitioned quite nicely from child stars to fashion stars with the launch of their line, The Row, in 2006.

But even though they've had major success in the fashion world, that doesn't necessarily make them certified designers, at least according to celebrity stylist Lysa Cooper.

In an interview with Vogue Italia, Cooper gave MKO and Ashley the ultimate backhanded compliment, saying:

Man Rips Off Penis After Ingesting Mushrooms!!!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsScary!

penis rip mushrooms ohio scary nightmare drugs

We aren't saying that the mushrooms in Ohio are so good they'll make you rip off your own penis, but rather they're so bad they'll make you rip off your own penis!

We wouldn't rip off another person's penis, let alone our own, so when we hear that a 41-year-old Ohio man was found naked, high on mushrooms, and covered in blood outside of a middle school last week — screaming like a madman — we're pretty shocked by it! LOLz!

Oh, and that blood was his own penis blood!

Here's what one of the cops said:

"He really wasn't saying much at all — a lot of yelling and screaming. He wasn't making sense. Officers couldn't really communicate with him in terms of constructive conversation."

Don't do drugs, you guys! Or at least be careful with them!

We aren't even asleep and we're already having nightmares! Gah!
