Split Screen: Beyonce "Countdown" vs Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
The earlier video highlights the work that "inspired" the music video for Beyonce's "Countdown." This second video puts the "inspiration" and the music video side-by-side.

HISTORY: Beyonce's "Countdown" video pays homage to many well-known women throughout recent history, including Audrey Hepburn and model Peggy Moffitt. However, most of the choreography and some of the cinematography, costumes and make-up used in the video are derivative of the work of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, a Belgian choreographer and dancer who was not as well-known by many young Americans until her work, uncredited, was pointed out in the video and others accused the video-makers of plagiarism. De Keersmaeker was not asked if her dance moves and overall style could be used and or mimicked for the video and was unaware of their appearance until she saw the video after its release.

This is not the first time Beyonce and her music videos have been called out for plagiarism or baring too
