That's when they contacted Christopher Elliott who wrote about the situation on his website and has talked about it in the media since. Here's what he recently said:

That leaves those fans wondering what kind of legal ramifications this could have on other songs with marginally matching melodies.

This Super Bowl won't be having this commercial!

GoDaddy has pulled an ad from the big game after a number of critics complained about the fact that the commercial seems to be OK with people who have puppy mills and support other "inhumane breeding" practices.

The short commercial featured a lost puppy finding its way home only to discover its owner sold the pup on a GoDaddy website.

How can one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood keep making flop after flop? We're not sure. Hopefully his portrayal as Whitey Bulger in this year's Black Mass can silence the criticism, but until then…
