When Hilary Duff’s video for “Beat Of My Heart” surfaced a couple of weeks ago, I had a sudden rush of deja vu – for once it wasn’t the melody or the lyrics that were making me nostalgic – it was the VIDEO! Where had I seen this video concept before?
Look no further than Liz Phair’s 2003 video for “Why Can’t I?” for the answer. The videos are eerily similar, in fact, a side by side comparison, as done by Willa over here shows you just how identical these two videos are. Is Hilary a copycat? Most likely not – because both videos were in fact directed by THE SAME PERSON! Looks like Phil Harder’s run out of ideas. And if you take a listen to Liz Phair’s “Why Can’t I?” you will notice that she even sounds like today’s pop princesses.Tweet
