Apartment Complex Courts Legal Action With Ad Featuring Darius Rucker’s Family
Watch out, the Views at Elm Grove — Darius Rucker is coming for you! One Rucker fan ran across an image of the singer's family as the advertisement for an apartment complex and called into morning radio show Big D & Bubba to reveal the surprising news.
"My wife and I were driving her grandmother back home from church," the listener says. "When we pulled in her apartment complex they've got a big sign with a nice, happy family that says, 'Apartments are available.'"
The man says upon looking closer, his wife mentioned that the photo looked an awful lot like Rucker. When she Googled "Darius Rucker family" the first picture that popped up was "the exact same picture that this apartment company used," he marvels.
He sent the hosts the picture to show that it really is Rucker and his family on the sign. So, they called the "If I Told You" singer to let him know about it.
"Oh my god!" Rucker says with a big chuckle upon seeing the photo of his family on the billboard. "Where is this so I can go ahead and get the cease and desist on that? That's unbelievably funny. That's my family, yeah. I have never seen anything like this before."
Still in shock, Rucker reveals that the photo is from his family's most recent Christmas card. "That's unbelievable. We get pictures taken every year together and that's our Christmas card. That's crazy," he adds. "[I'll] go to the lawyer when I get off the phone with you."
