Budweiser slap commercial: Blatant rip-off?

    Apologizes if this was mentioned elsewhere, I couldn't find it: http://www.nypost.com/seven/02062007/gossip/pagesix/bud_called_king_of_ad_lifters_pagesix_.htm

    The comedy troupe The Whitest Kids U'Know claims that the Bud Light ad in which fist bumping is replaced by face slapping as a new kind of greeting looks more than a little similar to a sketch on the group's Web site called "The New Thing." The Whitest Kids are consulting with lawyers. Their rep said, "They are very upset. They are considering their options."

    Judge for yourself:

    I see a courtroom defeat in the Whitest Kids' future.

    Neither one is funny.
    They certainly have that in common.

    That sketch is not even remotely funny. Not that the ad was either.

    WKUK is trying to be both infantile and intelligent at the same time. It's like oil & water, it just don't mix. *slap*

    Besides, the reactions and sound effects from the Bud commercial make it a lot funnier. Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk!

    Can I sue them both for having wasted time I'll never get back?
