oh man I would reblog your fabulous graphic but it’s just so much easier to right click, select ‘save file’, pick a folder, name the file, go to my dashboard, open a new photo post, click ‘upload’, find where I saved the file, select it, wait for it to load, tag it, and repost it gosh darn
Yet another great twitter convo
when someone on tumblr calls you by your real name
Me trying to finish something important on time:
I AM A STRONG INDEPENDENT awkward teenage girl who sorta needs a man but can’t really get one
So it seems that (almost) everyone is agreed. The most recent One Direction video is a bit of a fail… A bit of an epic fail. Both Nat and I were left largely confused by the video. Nat’s reaction was so extreme she even took the time to commit it to video.
But it goes further than that. When I first saw the video I was struck by how closely it resembled another brilliant video clip I had seen some time ago.
Well, in my opinion, it’s not just a resemblance. It’s plagiarism.
The attached article expresses it best, but I think this is the kind of thing which should be called out. The fandom, when it acts a whole, is actually very powerful. I think sometimes it’s forgotten that this group of people are actually in control of what happens with One Direction.
I don’t think hating on Ben Winston, or his production company, is the right thing to do, but I do think expressing your (mine and our too) serious concerns about the marketing direction that the One Direction brand has taken is both valid and necessary.
You have a voice. Use it.
-Tim (and Nat) :)
I spoke a little about how this reverse stromotion effect had been lifted directly from Clubfeet’s music video when You & I came out, but I’m sort of glad that Oh Yeah Wow is aware of it now, even if it means things are about to get awkward.
I mean, there’s making use of emerging technologies and then there’s using that technology to duplicate existing work and copy specific events, like say, the crate jump.
i cant believe the you and i video was plagiarized like if ben winston was gonna steal an idea then he should have at least stolen a good one
i got 20/20 but i still can’t see my haters
the music video for clubfeet’s everything you wanted, that was plagiarized by director ben winston for the one direction you and i music video
