Tom Scharpling Accuses Google Of Stealing Music For Chromebook Ad | Music News
Last night, (November 18) The Best Show host Tom Scharpling accused Google for stealing a song he wrote and performed on The Best Show called “Come On Y’ALL it’s time to have fun” for their Google Chromebook advert.
Scharpling sent the following statement to Pitchfork:
“When I hear elements of The Best Show in other comedy I’m usually flattered, because there are certainly elements of other comedy and comedians in The Best Show. But this is not a matter of influence or parallel thinking. This is a case of straight up thievery.
Google is a terrible company whose crimes against humanity are legion. And shamelessly ripping off content from a radio show that I have written and performed for free over the last fifteen years is merely their latest shameful act.
I will be pursuing this matter to the fullest extent of the law. Future updates and new episodes of The Best Show will be posted at www.TheBestShow.net.
The good guys will win in the end!”
