According to filmmaking brothers Mark and Michael Polish, the video bears a suspiciously close resemblance to their 2010 indie film For Lovers Only
, and the siblings accused Joe and director Jaci Judelson of recreating specific scenes from their movie. "It's very disheartening that a fellow director would go to those lengths to copy For Lovers Only
and not credit us," Mark Polish told TheWrap.com
. "If they had said our film was their inspiration, we would have been flattered," he added. "But nowhere in any of their materials do they say that we were an influence on them, which is upsetting to us as artists. And it makes this feel like plagiarism."
