And it’s not a joke! Actor Christopher Guest, aka Derek Smalls bassist in Spinal Tap filled a lawsuit against Vivendi Studios claiming that he was denied profits from the film. The suit says: “It is stunning that after all this time, two cinema releases, all the various home video format releases, all the records and CDs, and all the band-themed merchandise still widely available worldwide, the only people who haven’t shared Spinal Tap’s success are those who formed the band and created the film in the first place.” According to this Guest, Jerry Shearer and Michael McKean, the three members of the mock-band only made $81 in merchandise income from 1984 to 2006 and another $89 between 1989 to 2006 from the movie’s soundtrack! The suit is seeking over $125 million in damages and as we already said it’s not funny at all!
