image for Pink Floyd Sues Viagra Over "Another Prick That Stands Tall"

A representative of the rock group Pink Floyd has launched a lawsuit against the Pfizer Company, makers of Viagra the penis miracle drug, over their use of the music to their hit single, "Another Brick In The Wall".

"They have definitely crossed the line on this one and we are demanding one million dollars, says Band attorney, David Armstrong Jones. "You cannot just pick the song's tune up and throw it into a prick commercial without some compensation."

Jones said that the company has offered all the "members" of the band all the Viagra they want for free and anyone else connected to the group but they demand the cash.

Meanwhile, Big Dick Grabowski, a spokesman for Viagra, has insisted that the song they used is a copy of a parody of the song played often on the Rush Limbaugh Talk Show.

"We have fully compensated the parody company which has a right, according to the Supreme Court of the United States to use anything in the form of a spoof or parody."

Meanwhile "The Wall" which is subtitled Part I, Part II, and Part III, respectively, all of which were written by Pink Floyd's bassist and then lead songwriter, Roger Waters, has become one of the most famous Pink Floyd songs.

It is the Part II that is in question, having been voted as one of the top 500 rock songs of all time.

Pfizer, says that until the case is settled in court, they will be playing "Another Prick That Stands Tall" in their TV and radio commercials.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
