Midler sues Ford over car ad
Friday, May 2,1986


BETTE MIDLER has filed a $10 million suit in Los Angeles federal court against the Ford Motor Co. and a New York ad agency, claiming a “sound-alike” singer was used to praise the attributes of Lincoln Continentals in some recent auto ads.

The commercials featured the song, Do You Want to Dance, a hit for Midler back in 1972.

We’re sure the voice similarities are purely coincidental.
