It’s ironic – the attorneys for Piranha 3-D (2010) will need to become sharks to go after Two-Headed Shark Attack (2011) when they see the bone-headed chompfest’s DVD cover. Look familiar? Yep – that’s the exact same bikini/butt/legs used on the one-sheet for the smash hit Piranha 3-D.
Slick Photoshop work, but my detailed forensic analysis (as indicated by neato highlighted boxes and arrows), irrevocably proves the Piranha model was lifted note-for-note and re-purposed for Two-Headed Shark Attack’s cover. Same point-of-view, same bikini (the discarded micro top – only $39.99 on http://www.the-bikin.com – was just flipped over), same hands (on both wrists), same parted legs that are the handrails up the Stairway to Heaven…
The dictionary (the Bible for word barf disciples) defines plagiarism as: the “wrongful appropriation,” “close imitation,” or “purloining and publication” of another author’s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions,” and the representation of them as one’s own original work.
The dictionary goes on to say that being found guilty of plagiarism is punishable by death. The version I have, anyway.
We’ve all done it. In fact, you’re probably doing it right now. In which case, stop it. But to use the exact same butt becomes the butt of the issue. The bottom line (sorry) is that legal representation for Piranha 3-D could easily crack this case (sorry) and can monetarily reconcile before it goes to a potentially split jury (sorry), thereby wiping this case clean (sorry). Then they can leave this behind. (Sorry).
