Pharrell, Will.i.am (or his hologram) will see you in court!

In response, Pharrell had this to say:

Tom Shadyac's latest film I Am is about a man who bangs his head and suddenly begins ridding himself of possessions and money. And it's based on his own life!
The director of films such as Evan Almighty and Patch Adams had his own spiritual awakening after hitting his head in a cycling accident and post-concussion recovery during which his "brain had lost the ability to filter things out."
Three years ago, Shadyac sold his mansion and moved into a trailer home. He also gave most of his money and possessions away to charity. He gave $2 million to a Telluride, Colorado organization to save 550-acres of natural land to be used as public space rather than commercial developments.
In his film I Am, Shadyac interviews Desmond Tutu, Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky in exploring the materialistic nature of man.
