Melbourne blog Baked Not Fried have made bold claims that MGMT’s Time to Pretend video is a direct rip off from the The Shamen’s ’91 hit “Move Any Mountain.”
I’m not feeling it that much, but I do agree that there may just be a little too many coincidences between the two videos as BNF points out.
“Both clips start on a beach, both have two guys as the focus of the clip, both have rainbow vortexes and colour inversions and capes. Perhaps the only main difference is that The Shamen released theirs 17 years earlier.”
What do you think? Is this…
A: Blatant theft
B: Just slight inspiration.
C: This is minimal compared to when Cut Copy bit Lime and JLO
D: Um… What are you talking about this is gheyest post ever! They’re nothing alike!
