Is Taco Bell sportin' a Woody?

According to a recent post on Serious Eats, the new Taco Bell "Why Pay Mo'" campaign was inspired by Fort Wayne native Joe Woody's "Fast Food Freestyle" viral video. Well, if you ask some people, "inspired" is probably a little too generous. Does anyone know if Taco Bell gave Joe some dinero, or did they cross the border into plagarism?

I wondered the same thing the first time I saw the Taco Bell commercial. The similarities are way to obvious.

I actually emailed Joe Woody and he let me know they flat out stole it. No consultation, no offer to appear, nothing!
