The One Direction guys might be in big trouble, Directioners! The band is being accused of stealing the idea behind the Australian band Clubfeet's music video. After watching "You And I" and comparing it to the Aussie group's vid for "Everything You Wanted," there are some striking similarities and their production company OhYeahWow isn't too happy about it.
The team made a statement on their website on how alike the music videos are, saying, "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.”
So far no one from One Direction's team has commented on the matter, including the video's director Ben Winston, but we're sure we'll hear something soon.
Do you think it was wrong of 1D to copy the other band's video? Leave a comment below!
