An Italian influencer, Chiari Nasti and her new brand has been brought under the scanner after she was accused of allegedly plagiarizing BLACKPINK‘s ‘DDU-DU-DDU-DU’ music video.
Nasti, came under fire when fans of the K-Pop girl band noticed the undeniable similarities her new campaign had with the music video. BLINKS took to social media to share some BTS clips of Nasti’s upcoming campaign and compared them with stills from the music video that has clocked over 1.5 billion streams on YouTube.
Some of the alleged plagiarized material include similar costumes, settings and props. While one scene seems to be a rip-off of Jennie’s clip in the song carrying several bags while wearing an all-white ensemble with a wide-brimmed hat, another sees Nasti with a sword, much like Lisa’s scene in the MV.
Loyal BLINKs have been taking to social media to alter YG Entertainment with tweets pointing out all the similarities between the two projects.
