Hall & Oates don’t see the humor in granola called Haulin’ Oats


Hall & OatesApparently Darryl Hall and John Oates really are watching you, watching you, watching you.

According to Page Six, the legendary musicians discovered adorable, all-natural Brooklyn granola company Early Bird was selling a product cleverly named Haulin’ Oats and have filed a lawsuit to stop them.

Page Six says the duo filed the suit because the company is deliberately trying to make money off their fame. The name of this flavor of granola, it states, “was selected by the defendant in an effort to trade off of the fame and notoriety associated with the artist’s and plaintiff’s well-known marks.” So…they get the pun?

In the suit against Early Bird, Hall and Oates describe themselves as a “‘world famous’ sensation that has ‘sold more albums that any other duo in music history.'” So…they need the money?

The lawsuit does point out that Early Bird products are now sold in 38 states, Europe, and Japan, so maybe it’s not so small-batch after all. But its New York City presence, with a few bags on shelves at Union Market and Gourmet Garage, does not suggest rockstar-level market dominance.

Sure, the guys need to protect their brand, but I don’t know. I’ve definitely lost that lovin’ feeling. —Lisa Elaine Held
