Will.i.Am might be getting a call from Homer Simpson’s lawyers sometime soon. The mega producer is no stranger to copyright infringement lawsuits stemming from his frequent sampling of songs from other artists.
Now it’s been revealed that the man behind Usher‘s smash hit “OMG” might have borrowed from The Simpson‘s star. That’s right, Homer has a song that sounds extremely similar to Usher’s track.A made up Christmas song called “Christmas In December” was sung by Homer in an episode during the 14th season of The Simpsons.
Someone took notice of the similarities between Usher and Homer’s songs and compared them via YouTube video. Not only do they sound the same, but the lyrics don’t differ too much either.
This could be the most hilarious example of plagiarism we’ve seen yet. Take a look at the lyrics and video below to compare for yourself!
Homer’s “Christmas In December” Lyrics:
“Christmas in December/Wow wow wow/Gimme tons of presents/Now now now.”
Usher’s “OMG” Lyrics:
“Honey got a booty like/Pow pow pow/Honey got some boobies like/Wow oh wow.”
