The clip for Machine Gun Kelly and Camila's duet looks pretty familiar to a lot of fans...

The video for Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello's duet 'Bad Things' dropped yesterday (December 1st) and a lot of The 1975 fans are not happy about it...

Check out the clip below:

So, why are The 1975 fans so up in arms about it?

Because it is pretty damn similar to the clip for 'Robbers'. 

Take a look:

Sort of familiar...

Basically, both videos focus on a pair of lovers getting in trouble with the law with lots of running around, punching strangers, soft lighting sexiness and patterned shirts.

Oh, and people wearing handkerchiefs over their faces.

Fun Fact - In the same week he invented neon, Matty also invented handkerchiefs.

Seriously though, aesthetically and thematically, the 'Bad Things' video is definitely treading very similar territory and, in a year where pretty much everybody is attempting to copy Matty and the boys, their fans are, perhaps understandably, a bit p*ssed off...

 

 

 

 

But Camilla's fans have come rushing to her defence, pointing out that the inspo behind the video was the movie True Romance, another tale of lovers on the run.

 

 

 

Hmm, it's a tricky one...

So what do we think - is the 'Bad Things' video a copy of 'Robbers' or are any similarities just a coincidence?
