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):

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 Beyonc├â┬⌐ 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)!
