Inspiration or copy?

The results allow us to see quite interesting data, as is the case of the Shorts, where in Spain and the United States a similar video is repeated (the one of opening an egg underwater). The interesting thing here is that the original video was released on the profile of shangerdanger on January 6, 2022, and it is not until July 13, 2022 when itsKrufy post a very similar video with the same idea. Did you copy the second to the first? Be that as it may, the video of itsKrufy It worked really well, and it has been placed among the 10 most viewed Shorts of the year in Spain.

Even the introductory sentence is very similar to that “I was told a long time ago that breaking an egg underwater was the most incredible thing I could see”.

What do you think of these similar videos? Is YouTube and social networks in general mistreating a product that could be better?
