Philadelphia, PA – Cartoon character, “Fat” Albert Jackson is suing pop singer Robin “hash-tag” Thicke over a dispute that started March of 2013 upon the release of hash-tag Thicke’s single “Blurred Lines.” The song hit number one on the charts in 14 countries including the United Kingdom, Australia, Republic of Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Canada, New Zealand and the United States. The song even reached quadruple platinum in Australia and triple platinum in New Zealand.
The dispute is over popular lyrics in the song, “hey-hey-hey.” Jackson feels it is a blatant rip off from his catch phrase, “hey-hey-hey” from his popular 1970s TV show Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. “Hey-hey-hey this just isn’t fair,” Jackson said, “he used the naked ladies to cover the fact that he was stealing my phrase! There’s no way this would have flied if there weren’t and boobies in the video. But a couple girls get naked and now no one cares about poor old Albert.”
The video, which featured a censored and uncensored version, has women walking around, for no apparent reason, naked and mystified by Thicke. Due to the video’s nudity it did indeed stir up quite a bit of controversy, but nothing about ”hey-hey-hey” being stolen was mentioned anywhere. Jackson is suing hash-tag Thicke for an undisclosed figure. “He could have at least asked me to be in the video. A little cameo by me would have not only made all this legal business go away, but also doubled his sales,” Jackson said, “you think he’s good with the ladies? You should see me work my magic.”
Thicke was unavailable for comment, as he was busy, “drowning in the pussy,” and “moping up Albert’s tears with Benja-mins,” according to his agent.
