According to a report published by business and financial news site Reuters, Chicago pop-rockers Fall Out Boy have allegedly been sued due to the overuse of some llama puppet characters.
The report states that the company, Furry Puppet Studio Inc., filed their complaint in Manhattan federal court, seeking damages that its lawyer said could reach millions of dollars.
Fall Out Boy are being accused of illegally exploiting the two wearable, life-sized llama puppets it made for a music video by featuring them in other videos, a tour and an extended-play album. Apparently, the band did not have permission to use the puppets anywhere other than the 2017 video for the song ‘Young And Menace’.
The two llama puppets have been used throughout the campaign of their latest album, ‘Mania’, with the white one being called Frosty and the grey/purple one being called Royal Tea.
