Tonight Lego Is Gonna Prohibit the Use of Its Product in a DVD Tonight


The cruel masters at Lego have denied Spinal Tap permission to include on an upcoming DVD a fan-made video of Lego figures performing "Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight," simply because the song features lyrics like "You're too young and I'm too well hung" and "You're sweet, but you're just four feet and you still got your baby teeth." Even the famed copyright jerks in the Rolling Stones allowed their likenesses to be used elsewhere in the DVD. Says Harry Shearer, "Lego are the only people who strictly said no ... It was Lego Kafka." [NYT]
