In hilariously unreal and but completely plausible messes, the director of SNSD’s reunion music video “FOREVER 1” apologized for plagiarizing the fifteenth anniversary brand of Tokyo DisneySea.
After the similarities had been identified on Twitter, Shin Hee Gained apologized on Instagram.
“I want to apologize for hurting Women’ Era and SM Leisure because of the controversy surrounding the set design of the ‘Perpetually 1’ MV. Throughout my involvement in every stage together with the manufacturing in addition to in using all props, a design was borrowed with out permission, and I’m embarrassed and apologetic that such an incident occurred. In designing the quantity that might be positioned in a parade set celebrating Women’ Era’s fifteenth anniversary, a number of reference photographs associated to numerical designs had been up for consideration, and as soon as an applicable picture was chosen, the design was borrowed with none affirmation concerning the picture’s origin. I solely confirmed immediately that this design was the design utilized by Japan’s ‘Tokyo DisneySea’ for its fifteenth anniversary, and I want to sincerely apologize for utilizing this picture with none type of affirmation or permission. To be able to be sure that this doesn’t occur once more, I will test all issues associated to manufacturing totally any longer. Lastly, I want to as soon as once more apologize to Women’ Era, SM Leisure and to all of the followers who watched Women’ Era’s MV for inflicting such a hard incident with a careless mistake.”
That is extra humorous to me than something simply because it’s a minor a part of the music video and like … such a significant but particular factor to plagiarize. A Disney property, however Tokyo DisneySea’s fifteenth anniversary brand? Did they only Google logos for fifteenth anniversaries and decide the one they discovered coolest? Trigger that isn’t a “reference”, it’s truthfully simply straight up traced.
Although truthfully I assume the rationale they bothered apologizing was as a result of it’s Disney, and they’re going to ship within the Marines on you to implement their copyright.
