Australian indie rock heroes Tame Impala took to Instagram to criticize a song used in a commercial for a Chinese milk beverage. The song is a rewrite of the Tame Impala song ‘The Less I Know the Better,’ from the band’s 2015 album Currents. Tame Impala wrote in its caption, “I mean COME ON guys at least put some effort in,” adding the hashtag #Lawsuit and pinging the account of Australian music publisher Sony/ATV. See the band’s post here:
