'Mighty Boosh' pair furious with Sugar Puffs

The Mighty Boosh's Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt are reportedly angry at breakfast cereal Sugar Puffs for copying their singing style on a TV advert, The Sun reports.

The comedy duo are taking issue with the cereal brand, famous for its Honey Monster character, for using their "crimping" singing technique.

"A pal of the Mighty Boosh boys was lying in his pants watching daytime telly and saw the advert," a source revealed.

"He rang the Boosh and congratulated them on their work for Sugar Puffs.

"They were baffled and checked it out on the internet. They hadn’t been asked permission to use the style and are speaking to lawyers about getting the Honey Monster’s crimp removed from the airwaves."

Crimping is the singing of short songs based on random objects and events that are delivered by the characters Vince Noir and Howard Moon in each Mighty Boosh episode.

Posting on the YouTube clip of the advert, one Boosh fan wrote: "How dare they steal the crimp! Noel and Julian are the only crimpers in these parts..."

Another added: "I'm never buying Sugar Puffs again."
