LV filed papers in NYC over the weekend and are demanding a share of the films profits.
Reports the Times Of India via Hollywood Reporter:
Executives of the French brand have filed a lawsuit against the movie bosses claiming that a handbag seen onscreen in the hands of Galifianakis is a Louis Vuitton fake.
According to the legal papers, filed at a federal court in New York, the fashion house bosses are unhappy with a scene in which the actor carries a bag with a LVM logo and says, ” Careful, that is a Louis Vuitton,” the Daily Express reported.
They claim the bag is not a real Louis Vuitton and could cause confusion among consumers.
Good luck with that one, LV!
We don’t know how many people saw the Hangover 2, a sequel with the same premise as its original, so the profits received might be enough for a fake LV bag!
