After the initial excitement subsided, some fans felt the fierce, assassin-filled video borrowed too heavily from Britney Spears' 2004 masterpiece, "Toxic."

The Bad Blood music video is basically Joseph Khan recycling the images he used in Toxic and Womanizer but with an all-star cast.

If you claim you didn't think of Toxic when watching the Bad Blood video for the first time, you're lying.

Which, incidentally, was also directed by music video maestro Joseph Kahn.

Are the videos really that similar? Or are Britney fans just latching on to a single shot? Let's take a look at the videos side-by-side.
