"I went through media training, and I hated it. They’d teach you how to change the subject, whenever you were asked an uncomfortable question, by saying something like, “Oh, that reminds me of my dog! I have a great story about my dog!” Playing dumb is the best way of getting out of anything.”

I have seen both videos, an the evidence seems pretty clear to me. IT is not even as if they were stylistically similar - Ben’s video copies the original shot for shot in several places. That is inspiration, it’s theft.
And this is really what we are talking about: theft. The theft of an intellectual property. What disturbs me is just how many fans are quite OK with the idea. But what should we expect in the torrent generation, where everything is taken for free online as an entitlement. The worst part is that even if Ben and 1D corporate gets sued (which they should!!!!), the majority of fans will back them up with unwavering blind faith.
I do not blame the boys themselves: they pay Ben and others a lot of money to do the right thing. But in this case I think they were too trusting, their staff too lazy, and their management completely inept.
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.
