So, Shakira rips Woodkid

TheeBlog-Woodkid_Shakira Being that this World Cup’s song is not what everyone was expecting and has received a lot of criticism, Shakira decided she would step in again and save the day by releasing a song (remember Waka Waka) and a new video featuring a couple of iconic players like Neymar, Messi, and of course, Piqué. There’s only one little problem. The video is a cheap, blatant copy of Woodkid’s Iron music video – you know, that lovely music video we enjoyed a couple of years ago (HERE) . The copy is pretty obvious. From the way the set is arranged, to the elements, animals, effects and even camera shots. In fact, they’re shot in the same order! There’s no such things as “inspiration” when you pretty much recreate shot by shot another video and switch an owl with an eagle. And for those of you thinking I’m hating, I am sorry, but if there’s something I truly hate, is copies and unoriginal people cashing in on someone else’s work. So yes, I will call you out. I mean, it’s Shakira, did they really think nobody would notice???

With SO many talented Directors doing amazing work, and so many new Directors hoping and waiting for a single opportunity, why invest considerable money on people that can only duplicate what others have done and have zero respect for their field and what they do? Next time, do some research, it won’t be hard to find talented and original people who can deliver beautiful work.
