Plagiarism ain’t pretty.

MGMT treats us with a parody of song plagiarism in their new video “Me & Michael” where we see the duo stealing a song that was written by a Filipino band named Truefaith. The song becomes a hit that they even get to have their own shampoo line named after the song. And fyi, Truefaith is an actual rock band from the Philippines and actually recorded a version of “Me & Michael” for this video. Watch below:

“Me & Michael” is from MGMT’s upcoming album Little Dark Age, which will be out on February 9th. They will start touring on March, so make sure to get your tickets before they sell out:
