Ben & Jerry’s Successfully Sued A Porn Studio Over Trademark Infringement

Ben and Jerrys

As a testament to just how deep the well of porn parody goes, the folks at Ben & Jerry’s recently had to file a lawsuit against North Hollywood adult film company Caballero Video because of a new series of adult films with names based on the iconic ice cream company’s flavors. The brass at Caballero, AKA Rodax Distributors Inc., agreed to a settlement with Ben & Jerry’s and agreed to not release any films under the previously planned and admittedly delicious “Ben & Cherry’s” titles.

According to the Chicago Tribune, this was all about protecting the brand name and stopping someone from besmirching a wholesome company’s fine image.

Ben & Jerry’s had said that Caballero didn’t have permission to reference Ben & Jerry’s or its trademarked ice cream flavors, which have names that the filmmakers evidently found to be a creative goldmine.

Ben & Jerry’s flavor names include “Banana Split,” “Cherry Garcia” and “Everything But the…” — all of which became fodder for X-rated fare in Caballero’s hands. Caballero also used packaging that resembled Ben & Jerry’s well-known clouds and cows imagery.

Only two examples were offered for Caballero’s parody titles, as the Tribune served up “Boston Cream Thigh” and “Peanut Butter D-Cups,” and I’m a little disappointed in those. Fortunately, us FilmDrunkards are the best in the world when it comes to thinking up porn parody titles and Ben & Jerry’s has quite the list of ice cream names for us to work with. So let’s have some fun with this one, comrades.

I’ll start with “Spunky Monkey”, “Chocolate Felch Browneye” and “Karamel Sutra.” Wait, sorry. That last one is a real flavor. And to think someone would be filthy enough to parody such a clean cut company.
