Bill Murray’s company, William Murray Golf, has been using the Doobie Brothers song “Listen to the Music” in ads without compensating the band, and the result has been a back and forth of dad jokes between both sides’ legal counsel.
On Wednesday, the Doobies’ lawyer Peter Paterno publicly issued the funniest legal threat we’ve ever seen. “It’s a fine song. I know you agree because you keep using it in ads for your Zero Hucks Given golf shirts,” he wrote in the letter. “However, given that you haven’t paid to use it, maybe you should change the company name to ‘Zero Bucks Given.’”
