Dude, it looks NOTHING like the Eiffel tower. Just because it's a tower doesn't mean it looks like the Eiffel tower.

Whoa, it's a tower! It must be a copy of the Eiffel tower!

SERIOUSLY. No.

No, I'm not joking. And you must not have a brain or eyes. The ONLY similarity between the two is the fact that they are both towers. That's it. The shape is completely different - Eiffel Tower is square, Sky Tree is triangular, becoming circular. Sky Tree is essentially one tall pole with an exoskeleton. Eiffel Tower is four separate feet that meld together. Sky Tree has two conical shaped observation decks on the top half of the tower. Eiffel Tower has two square shaped floors on the lower half.

Here's what the Tokyo Sky Tree will look like:


Here's what the Eiffel Tower looks like:

Good for you Head Candy. How about we just erect some penises instead? Get some aesthetic sense.
