Anyone else get a STRONG feeling this is a clever use of reference to Little Wing ?

(check out 0:20 onwards!)

Good coffee btw! :banana2:

It is definitely a rip-off on the 'Little Wing' theme. As to a clever use of it? I cannot see any connection. Perhaps if someone translates the dialogue into American.

haha...dude...douwe egberts. get down! and the funniest thing is that probably they are totally in line with the current music rights laws and as they only quote 1 second step by step, they will not have to pay any royalties to EH, then again this is one of the most obvious Hendrix rip offs ever. note for note, thanks for psting, johan.

Plagiarism, tut tut tut.
We have a sofa company in the UK that does this with so many well know bands / songs from Bob Marley to Led Zeppelin. Always cleverly done as Olvator points out so no royalties have to be payed.

I had to write a poem at school once for my exams in English (which i`m crap at) so i copied the lyrics of Angel word for word (or close as i could remember them) and handed that in.... can you believe I only got a B?

I think the saddest bit is, non of the teachers noticed.. but Jimi sure got me out the shit.

Maybe thats whats going on here...?? hmmmm.

I'd rather have had needles stuck in my eyes than get up in front of a class, let alone start talking. Jimi got me outta that one as I decided, at the last minute, to just recall the 69 LA Forum concert that I had recently attended.
