Did “Big Bang Theory” Rip Off Brobdingnagian Bards?


In a recent episode of Big Bang Theory, Sheldon is tricked into saying “brobdingnagian” three times fast (watch the scene on YouTube).

Now compare that to a recording made by Andrew McKee of the legendary Brobdingnagian Bards.  It was recorded in 2000 as a way for fans to know how to say their band name–“How to Say Brobdingnagian?

Remarkably similar. But considering the Brobdingnagian Bards are the premiere Celtic Geek band, I guess it's only fitting that the premiere Geek Sitcom should steal from the best!

But before anyone worries about a costly lawsuit, the Brobdingnagian Bards response to the alleged theft, “AWESOME!!!!!!”

The Brobdingnagian Bards' CD Brobdingnagian Fairy Tales was not only one of the top-selling CDs on CD Baby in 2005, it is filled with some of the most-entertaining Celtic Sci Fi music. Find more Bards' CDs in our Brobdingnagian Bards Celtic CD Store.
