Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has settled a lawsuit filed by Talking Heads singer David Byrne after Crist used one of the group’s songs without permission in a campaign ad last year, both parties confirmed Monday.
Terms of the settlement were not released, but it included a recorded apology by Crist that was posted on YouTube Monday afternoon.
Crist sets a new standard for stilted delivery and half-hearted eye contact as he hunches over his laptop in a wrinkled shirt. No teleprompter for Crist, and he couldn’t even be bothered to position his laptop at eye level while reading the apology.
I guess if you’re legally obligated to humiliate yourself, this is the way to go:
