World Of Wonder Accuses Cher Of Jacking Video Concept From One-Hit Wonder

At 67 years old with more more than 100 million albums sold, it was only a matter of time before someone accused the true Queen of being unoriginal.

Cher, the flawless woman that essentially invented the concept of artists being unique and original, has been accused by World of Wonder of ripping off her latest video concept from a one-hit wonder 90s electric band called The Ones (you don’t know anything by them.)

World of Wonder went to work plugging the band’s latest video by claiming it pioneered the concept of Cher’s latest, “Woman’s World.” The videos look nothing alike, but WOW is asking “Rip-off or homage?”

You tell us!

      No… Just no.

      Do they OWN people dancing in front of a background?

      i love Cher but to say the videos look nothing alike has me questioning your eyesight.
      also, a quick wikipedia search would show that The Ones charted in the UK TWICE!
      with the same song!!! you even use the word “Flawless” in your article!!
      so please… give credit where it’s due.

      This concept has been done a number of times before… it ain’t exactly original on anybody’s part!

      Does no one do any research? If you had googled for 5 seconds you might have noticed that there is a drag queen filled music video for Woman’s World, staring a collection of former drag racers coming out on September 5th. This is obviously a publicity stunt orchestrated by both parties or just WOW trying to get attention for their upcoming release.

      Better song and video and they had the good sense not to raid the recycling bin next to the shredder to make wigs out of. Still confident that there is a single of Cher’s album that will be a huge hit.

      The Ones has a hit in 2001 and have put our music in the teens as well. it’s incorrect to refer to them as a 90’s group. This video is gorgeous! The styling is impeccable!

      I like the Cher song. I like the Cher video. I like the Cher wig.

      As No. 13 said, Thy shalt not Blaspheme Thy Chereth without suffering a Lake of Fire.

      Yet, World of Wonder thinks they are the total shit for promoting Tori Spelling, That little gapped toothy Whitey Houston child, Cher’s child, and more Tori Spelling

      Actually so much Tori Spelling that it can create massive puking upon visitation.
