A Third Lawsuit Filed Against an Ad Run During This Year’s Super Bowl

Mar 15, 2010  •  Post A Comment

This year’s Super Bowl ads have been incredibly litigious. First, Lindsay Lohan filed a suit against E*Trade for its Super Bowl babies ad.

Then, luxury goods maker Louis Vitton sued Hyundai for using the Vitton logo in one of its Super Bowl ads.

Now, Drive-In Music Company is suing Kia Motors for allegedly ripping off a song it owns, "Let a Woman Be a Woman" by funk group Dyke & the Blazers, in the car maker’s Super Bowl ad, the Hollywood Reporter reports.  

Drive-In also named CBS in the suit for airing the commercial in the first place and continuing to air it, as well as the NFL for featuring the ad on its web site.

The ad features toys road tripping across the country in a Kia.

  1. Slight correction: according to Ashley Simpson she now well known enough to be recognized simply by the name “Ashley”. She also intends to sue every person with the name Ashley born before or after the date of her birth (or, as I like to call it, “The Day Satan Spawned a Daughter”) and will also sue the estate of Margaret Mitchell for using the name for a character in “Gone With The Wind”. It’s reported that Simpson or “Ashley-Prime” ‘sees right through the obvious attempt to get away with using the name by giving it to a male character’. In other news, Ashley-Prime’s parents have admitted that the lip sync artist has been dropped on her head at least once every day since birth.
