A little more than 12 hours after the release of the music video for her song “Te3ebt Mennak,” the source material behind Elissa’s new music video has been revealed.
The director is Salim el Turk, the man who gave Elissa her previous music video around which similar accusations were made.
The copying is obviously not Elissa’s fault. No one expects her to be familiar with such things. Her director, on the other hand, seems to like getting “inspired” quite often. Or is it the Samsung effect?
Of course, he also gave the world “My Last Valentine in Beirut.” Enough said? That movie is horrible.

I think we can safely say this is more than close ideas.
