The Black Eyed Peas Settle Their Case Against a Pooping Unicorn Toy

The Black Eyed Peas have settled what is quite possibly the funniest lawsuit of all time.

BMG, the band’s record label, reached an agreement with toy company MGA Entertainment over allegations that the promotional track for a slime-pooping unicorn titled “My Poops” had ripped off the Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps.” Yes, you read that correctly.

According to Rolling Stone, the two parties reached an agreement earlier this week, although the exact terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

The lawsuit was filed in January this year and alleged that the song created for the Poopsie Slime Surprise unicorn toys “exhibited willful copyright infringement” and “exploited, without authorization” the 2005 hit song. BMG also claimed the toy company “created a song called ‘My Poops’ that clearly copies from, and is substantially similar to, ‘My Humps,” ranging from the song’s lyrics to the bass line to even a “Fergie-like inflection.”

Looking at the lyrics alone, it’s easy to see how BMG had a case. With lines like “Whatcha’ gonna do with all that poop?” and “But when you rock a Poopsie, you just be poopin’ it all up!” You can listen to the full song yourself and decide, although the video has been removed from YouTube as of now. But nothing’s ever truly gone from the Internet, even singing pooping unicorns.
