Rihanna has ripped off Tank Girl!!

31 Jan

Check out her latest video for her single titled : “Hard”.

Now take a look at this video of Tank Girl:

Just to be clear: Rihanna’s video is a glam rip off of the original Tank Girl style from the comic and the film. What do you think?

    Wow you are right– wasn’t really familar with tank girl – but she seems to be more about the power while Rihanna’s your basic playboy / wet dream playing at being ” in charge” posing- I particularly detest the mud wrestling/rolling segment.

    Was totally my first thought when I saw it – especially where she’s straddling the pink tank and wearing a Micky Mouse eared helmet. I did a specific search just to see if anyone else had the same impression!

    I don’t think it’s a rip-off, so much as it it a homage.

    I had this exact thought when I saw the video. Looked it up, and I am not alone! I guess she put a bit of her own spin on it, but I’m not sure if it makes me like her a little bit more or hate her cuz she is NOT Tank! And where the hell was Jet? She missed an opportunity to make a reeeally stellar video by leaving Jet Girl out.
