The host of “The Late Show“, an American late night talk show, referenced the legal settlement between Ringo Starr and the brand Screaming O. He added his humorous commentary to the whole situation by presenting other potential names that could link The Beatles band to sex toys.
The reason behind the 2019 dispute between Ringo Starr and the Screaming O brand was the name of the ‘RingO‘ (now ‘Ring O’) penis ring. The drummer of the legendary band, was concerned that due to the similarity of the names, it could be associated with a sex toy.
A week ago a settlement was reached between the musician and the companies responsible for the production of the toy, and it would seem that the dispute will be quickly forgotten and only those interested in news from the world of erotic toys will know about it.
But the situation was brought to the attention of Stephen Colbert, who in his own humorous way commented on the dispute and listed some potential names for other sex toys that could be inspired by The Beatles’ hits:
Thus, the musician’s fears have come true, as the show ‘The Late Show’ hosted by Stephen Colbert is estimated to be watched by nearly 3 million viewers on its airing day.
The biggest winner of the whole situation is the Screaming O brand, which has thus made its way into the mainstream media and even the most popular late night talk show in America. Not only has their product been introduced to a wide audience, but also in a context that, according to the settlement, they themselves can not use.
