Steve Aoki misses the joke, files cease & desist against Wunderground
No, this isn’t a parody article.
Everyone’s favorite dance music satire site, Wunderground, was recently issued a cease & desist letter from Steve Aoki’s crack legal team. We’ve all been tricked at one point or another by their well-written articles that play on the absurdities present in dance music today – but this time it’s Steve who doesn’t get the joke.
The Wunderground writers are unbiased in their attacks, targeting Tale of Us and Richie Hawtin alongside Tiesto and Hardwell – their attacks equally distributed to every corner of the dance music zeitgeist.
According to the CEO of Wunderground, Mikey Maguire, Steve is attempting to sue them for a shirt that they never created (although the intent was there based on their kickstarter campaign to raise funds), and therefore he has no legal ground to stand on.
The shirt in question is below:
It’s also not the first time that they’ve received legal notice – David Guetta attempted to sue the website as well – but it is a rare occasion that Wunderground broke character to address the hilarity of Aoki’s claims.
