Jack White to Take Strong Action Over Air Force Reserve's Ad


Jack White
Alleging Air Force Reserve ripped off his song for Super Bowl ad, The White Stripes rocker plans 'to take strong action to stop the ad containing this music.'


The White Stripes star Jack White has taken exception to a TV ad which aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 7 - because he feels it ripped off his "Fell in Love With a Girl" hit. The rocker and executives at his Third Man Records have complained about the U.S. Air Force Reserve's apparent "re-recording" of the tune.

In an online post, White and the record label bosses write, "We believe our song was re-recorded and used without permission of the White Stripes, our publishers, label or management. The White Stripes take strong insult and objection to the Air Force Reserve's presenting this advertisement with the implication that we licensed one of our songs to encourage recruitment during a war that we do not support."

"We have not licensed our song to the Air Force Reserve and we plan to take strong action to stop the ad containing this music."
