Flo-Rida

I don't like Flo Rida or K-pop, but this is a pretty funny video with Korean plagiarism.


"Dokdo is ours" had a funny write-up as well. The amount of plagiarized art and fashion in Korea is mind-boggling considering their relative financial clout. It reminded me of the first time I saw this MC Mong video (plagiarism starts around 0:40 or so) which is a blatant rip-off of the DJ Shadow and Thom Yorke song for UNKLE called "Rabbit in your headlights." The most obvious proof it's a rip off is at 4:20 in the UNKLE video and 3:46 in the MC Mong abomination.

It's fucking pathetic how much these scumbags get away with... No one says, "Hey, that's exactly the same as something someone better did..." because no one who's not Korean actually cares enough. Let's get Michael Eisner over here and ask him to collect the fees for Disney images, or have EMI get the balls to just say when their shit's been stolen.

Or, let's shine a light on it to show just how pathetic Korea really is - that they can't do a thing without ripping off a country they pretend to hate.
