UPDATE: Lipstick Lesbians Can’t Save FCUK, Even Through Plagiarism

Did you like that FCUK Lipstick Lesbian Kung-Fu Fighting video we posted earlier? We did too, so much that we’re going to post it again… only this time, we’re going to post the Groovecutters’ ‘We Close Our Eyes’ music video its totally fucking plagiarizing.

Or simultaneously, after the jump:


Groovecutters
FCUK

Still not convinced? Check the Groovecutters’ website for a shot by shot comparison!

How do you explain the remarkable similarity? Both video and commercial have the same director.

We like the FCUK ad better, but both works suffer from the same drawback: watching hot women kiss is a lot less sexy when one of them has just pulled her face out of a toilet.

Thanks for the tip, Nick! We realize this is a bit old, people, but since we posted on the commercial’s failure to raise revenue, we thought it was still relevant.

    Wow, this is worse than Apple’s rip-off of The Postal Service’s music video.

    It’s called demo love, y’all. There are no new ideas in advertising, just more expensive ones.

    Who cares? The more kick-ass lesbian videos the better. ;)

    If tacky ads that appeal to the lowest common denominator don’t save you, nothing will. Not even a million fighting greased up lesbians.

    I am also a bigger fan of that Benny Benassi video of greased up girls playing with power tools.

    Karl Hungus– is that who that was, Benny Benassi? I saw that video awhile back and was looking for info on it. However, in true YouTube fashion, there are never any info tags or captions aside from “sexy hot chicks” or some simliar bullshit.

    Benny Benassi for president.

    Yep, it’s Benny Benassi’s “Satisfaction” video.

    How come it’s plagiarism and not a derivative work? A remix, if you will?
