Community Controversy? Well not really.

Looks like has a clip of Community that is somewhat similar to an amateur clip.  Some are claiming plagiarism but I don't see it.  I have to say that nether case is what you would call original, in fact several shows have done similar scenes... in fact the Office did one with Tobey when Jim and Pam started dating.  Not to mention that everyone writing that sketch would come up with similar jokes given the story regardless of if they have seen the other.  Plus it seems logical considering the Dean and Joel's characters. I don't see any wrong doing.  Ether way here are the two clips.  You decide:
