Music is bound to repeat itself just like fads in the fashion industry. Everything comes and go and originality is never truly original its always inspired by a motif. But that’s not exactly the thought on everyone’s mind.
Canberra indie band SAFIA had accused Ariana Grande’s Team of copying their video. On Monday, the band took to their social media SAFIA Facebook Page and wrote:
SAFIA’s music video for “You Are The One” released on September of 2014 opens with a static introduction and opening credits with a young woman getting out of a car who seems distressed and running down a street full of people in an what resembles an apocalyptic scene under a purple meteor shower. The video also closes with the woman kissing a man while meteor showers surrounds them ultimately causing an explosion around them and end of scene.
Ariana Grande’s music video for “One Last Time” which was released just a day ago follows almost the same script with the only difference they added more obstacles while she runs through the crowd and it almost looked like a quarantine in the midst of the end of the world. She also has a purple tone like effect on the sky and she also kisses her boyfriend at the end of the video with an explosion around them at the end of the video.
And of course this was not an easy pill for Arianators to read as they responded immediately all over social media defending Ariana Grande’s music video with angry backlash. But SAFIA fans supported the group by also leaving comments on their wall and screenshots of why they were so upset with Grande’s video.
Max Landis, who is the director behind “One Last Time” took to Twitter to defend his work from the masses:
But both of these music videos are very close to the same apocalyptic ideal for another band whose music video looks very similar. So in the end who is copying who? I’ll leave all three videos here and let you decide. Feel free to leave comments down below and let me know your thoughts.
