Kodaline victory as Kelloggs vow to replace 'rip off' song advert

SHARE

Kelloggs have announced they are withdrawing their TV advert after Kodaline complained they stole their music.

The Irish band were furious when they heard the breakfast food maker’s new campaign – with the music sounding exactly like their track All I Want.

Goss.ie first revealed that Kodaline attacked Kelloggs for the theft claiming it was a “rip off” and that they should write their “own song.”

Now Kelloggs have confirmed they will be removing the similar tune and commissioning a replacement advert.

“The song used in our current Storybook ad is an original created by an artist called Libby Kash,” they said.

“However, being mindful of Kodaline‚Äôs concerns, as a gesture of goodwill we have decided to change the song. The new song will be in place the next time we run the ad.”

Co-owner of Kodaline’s record label, Martin Toher, has said that the matter was “in the hands of the band’s lawyers”.
