"Balls of Fury" stole their idea from Youtube!

Have you heard of the new movie Balls of Fury? What about Paddles of Glory? Strangely similar name, isn't it? That is because the concept was stolen from my two roommates, Dave and Ben! Apparently, back during Thanksgiving 2006, my roomies decided to make a movie mocking the many, many sports movies that where around "back in the day." Little did they know that almost a year after posting it on YouTube, their concept would be stolen by Robert Garant and made into a full length film! Don't believe me? See for yourself!

This is the video my roommates made:

This is the movie Garant made:

Creepy, isn't it?

Will justice ever be served? Probably not. In fact, this is probably just a really cool coincident. Still, its pretty crazy how similar they are in terms of concept.
