Chica-chicaaaaah! Did Karl Rove‘s American Crossroads Super PAC use the song made famous from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in its new anti-Obama attack ad without permission?
The Swiss electronica band Yello is up in arms over a controversial new anti-Obama ad commissioned by Rove and his Super PAC American Crossroads. In between the various cool things that Obama does in the ad is a deep-voiced “Oh yeah” that sounds just like the band’s “Oh Yeah” made famous in the 1986 movie.
“Yello were not asked, and would not have given permission for such a political campaign,” band spokesman Peter Vizthum told political reporter McKay Coppins. “We’ll have the legal options checked here.”
