Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker has put the clamp down on a milk company’s advert, threatening to sue due to plagiarism of one of the main singles from Currents.
Parker took to Instagram to express his frustration at the blatant reuse of The Less I Know The Better, reposting the ad with the caption “I mean COME ON guys at lest put some effort in” and tagging Sony ATV Australia to notify.
According to Sony, the company didn’t have any rights to the use of the single, hence there is “no contest” in court and the company will have to pay a high price due to Tame Impala’s costly rates for use.
In the meantime, Parker announced earlier this year that Tame Impala are “on a break” from making albums, so no new music for a while unfortunately. Just lawsuits.
