The Black Eyed Peas Seeks  Million From Singing Unicorns for Ripping Off ‘My Humps’

There have been a handful of notable lawsuits lately over similar lyrics or tunes found in popular pop songs, and it seems no one is safe. Cute and talented unicorns are now under fire after one of their songs allegedly ripped off a classic Black Eyed Peas song and could face millions of dollars in fines. Yes, unicorns, you heard right.

TMZ reported that toy brand Poopsie Slime Surprise has created a series of videos to promote its products to children. One of them is a music video that contains lyrics with the words “poo” and “glitter” in the same sentence. This video ended up as an ad campaign to promote products because what kind of kid doesn’t like poop content? Unfortunately, the Black Eyed Peas got wind of it and decided to act.

The rap group claims these unicorns ripped off the song “My Humps,” one of the group’s biggest hits. The song won a 2007 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and a 2006 MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video.

The lines “my poops, my poops, my poops, my glitter poops” were meant to be similar to the 2005 hit, and the toy’s parent company, MGA Entertainment, reportedly didn’t ask the band for permission to use the tune and the weather. . The group also claimed that the unicorn singer sounded “very similar” to Fergie.

The Black Eyed Peas and BMG are now seeking $10 million in damages. So far, neither the toy company nor the Black Eyed Peas or their representatives have announced whether it will go to court. If so, and if the toy company were forced to pay royalties, the song could become one of the most expensive jokes in history.
